Days to contemplate what is important…..

Posted on: March 7, 2010

Today I visited a place called Corazon in South Chicago. It is a place for educating women and children, immigrants who speak very little English and have little money or personel resources to gain this education In this area  there is needm for help with money, time, and volunteers to assist as much as possible. It is sponsored by the School Sisters of Notre Dame in the Midwest-Atlantic Province……Driving through areas boarded up, torn down or burned down is very eye-opening to the poor in our own

In response to a shifting ministerial presence for the School Sisters of Notre Dame community, Corazon a Corazon was founded to serve the south side of Chicago. Begun in 2002 on 95th and Commercial offering ESL, After School (2003) and Summer programs addressing the need of elementary levels to adults. In 2008 Corazon moved to its present location to expand the program to the residents in the area.

Corazon a Corazon under the sponsorship of the School Sisters of Notre Dame, serves as a catalyst for fundamental change in the community by providing individualized educational services to women and children at risk.
