2017 • 4 years • Chicago Commitment
Established in 1990, the Resurrection Project’s mission is to create community ownership, build community wealth, and serve as a steward of community assets. The organization serves Chicago’s predominantly Latino and immigrant neighborhoods of Pilsen, Little Village, and Back of the Yards. It offers low-income residents of these communities financial wellness programs, immigration legal services, and community outreach and organizing. It also transforms abandoned or neglected housing into affordable units, manages a no-commission real estate agency, and offers mortgages at fair rates to low-income residents. Institutional support enables the Resurrection Project to upgrade its technology to track client interaction through all of the organization’s programs. It also allows it to add senior staff for operations and real estate development, positions that will be sustained over time through earned revenue.
2012 • 1 year • Community & Economic Development
The Resurrection Project (TRP) is not-for-profit organization that seeks to build healthy communities through organizing, education and community development. This grant fuinds the costs of expert legal and financial consultants engaged by TRP to inform its exploration of options to mitigate the negative impact of the closure and sale of Second Federal Savings, a failed Thrift that has served low-income Latino communities for more than 30 years. Approximately 1,200 households in TRP's target communities had Second Federal loans and most are at high risk of foreclosure due to sharp home value declines and the continuing effects of the U.S. economic downturn.
