Bridgeport – Fellowship House

Bridgeport

In the late 1800s, this neighborhood started off as home to Irish-Americans who were irrigation workers that helped build the Illinois and Michigan canal. By the 1950s, it was home to many Italian, Croatian, Chinese and Lithuanian immigrants and then Mexican immigrants by 1990. Home to five Chicago mayors, including Richard M. Daley and his father, Bridgeport is rooted in political history. Today, it is a thriving community and boasts rich ethnic diversity.

CYC – Fellowship House

The Fellowship House structure was constructed in the late 1800s and was one of two settlement houses in Chicago. In 1960, Chicago Youth Centers (CYC) occupied the space and initiated its community support services, offering well-trained youth-development specialists who give individual attention to more than 400 children and teens each year to help them with academic achievement and social and life skills development. The goal is to give members the tools, support and guidance they need to reach their full potential through the following age-specific programs:

Early Childhood Education

School-Age Child Development

Teen Leadership Development
