Neighborhood Network: Little Village
Little Village, a vibrant Latino neighborhood, wanted to make their families and their community more resilient. The Marshall Square Network, a coalition of agencies and community organizations already working together to share resources and training, was the ideal community alliance to partner with to create a neighborhood network. Marshall Square was excited to work with United Way to coordinate services for their schools and families around the specific goal of healthier living and stemming violence (domestic and
street) in their community.
