Empowering Generations

A Story of Hope

  • A Story of Hope began at Chicago Youth Centers

    Hope Massallo lives in a low-income housing project surrounded by gangs, violence, and poverty. Because of donors like you, and encouraged by Chicago Youth Centers’ expert staff since age three, today Hope is looking toward college and her future. Let’s create more stories of “hope” together. Donate today.
