For the past year and a half, Reason to Give has been working to put together a comprehensive resource guide for residents of Humboldt Park, giving them easy access to hundreds of local services and important phone numbers. The resource guide is in English and Spanish and is a comprehensive guide to all the community has to offer, including descriptions, contact information, and bus routes. Thanks to funding from the Chi West Resource Net, Reason to Give was able to print over 1000 copies for distribution.
On January 17, 2011, Reason to Give and Public Allies Chicago hosted a Martin Luther King service day to deliver the Reason to Give Community Resource Guides to 1000 Humboldt Park residents and organizations. The event was held at Lafayette Elementary school. Read the full story here.
