Testimonials

  • "After ten years at Chicago Commons, I feel a sense of pride in believing that my work is connected to something bigger - especially as Chicago Commons provides such a broad spectrum of social services to so many communities. The program I work for, Child Development, is regarded as an exemplary educational program with influence that reaches beyond social services, which also gives me a sense of an extended community. Maybe what has kept me at Chicago Commons for so long is that it continues to be a tremendous learning experience, especially because I am learning from colleagues, community members and children."
