Do you remember what you dreamed of being when you were growing up? Maybe your dreams changed as you moved through life, adjusting as you discovered new passions, skills, or learned about different options. Or maybe you became what you had always hoped. At Partners for Our Communities (POC) we’re in the dream business; everything we do focuses on creating an environment where children and adults cannot only dream of a successful future, but have the tools and support needed to achieve those dreams. We’d like you to join us.
For 25 years, POC has met the educational, health, and wellness needs of families in the northwest suburbs of Chicago. The agency is unique as it meets the needs of community members with barriers by bringing together community partners to facilitate long-term change for these individuals and families. We help make the dreams of these families come true, and we need your help.
POC nurtures individuals of all ages to become leaders in our communities. Adults come through our doors and we meet their needs for education, employment, and health and wellness programming. We uplift families through parenting skills, youth development, family engagement activities, and exposure to the broader community. Last year, in our ICompete Program alone we served 1,752 individuals, and in our Family Learning Lab we served 1,323 community members. With your gift, we can touch more lives and help make more dreams come true.
We’ve included two response cards to make it easy to share these dreams with a friend; new gifts will be matched.
