What do we love about East Garfield Park?

East Garfield Park is home to several positive role models, who, for years, have influenced the neighborhood and give sacrificially of their household income to meet the needs of extended family.

Many residents catch public transportation to work, and they work hard. Those with families often work multiple jobs to pay the bills but still try to find time to be at home with their children.

The children in our neighborhood are dreamers. Several have hopes of attending college -- 51 Breakthrough students have done so.

We're turning potential into realized success.

Despite the best intentions and big dreams of our friends and neighbors, there are significant negative influences to overcome. By building healthy relationship networks, growing the skills of the men, women and children, and promoting the transfer of wisdom to our younger generation, Breakthrough continues participation in the development of the God-given potential of the East Garfield Park community.

We are honored and blessed to live and work alongside the people of East Garfield Park. We invite you to get to know them and join us as partners in the process of learning together!
