Neighborhood Network: Brighton Park
Brighton Park is a neighborhood located approximately seven miles from the Loop on Chicago’s southwest side. Brighton Park was identified a high need community but there
were no social service intermediaries and funding was lacking. However, the Brighton Park Neighborhood Council (BPNC) was an active organization that was focused on community schools and providing quality after school programs to students. BPNC was drawn to the idea of collectively working with other community organizations to offer broader support to families and students allowing students to thrive and graduate from high school.
Launch Date: March 2013
