“Empowering lives through relationships, one at a time.”
At Good Neighbor campaign, we work with residents in the community to help them realize their ability to take control of the direction of their lives. To this end, GNC has offered family-centered activities and services for much of its history; providing a safe space and structured environment to supplement learning, to encourage healthy habits and norms, and to become agents of the changes they wish to see.
A SAFE PLACE TO LEARN, GROW AND BE YOUR BEST SELF.
Coronavirus has been a disruptor in many industries. Luckily the Good Neighbor campaign has answered the education call by providing a safe space for all school-age students to learn, get support, and most importantly not fall behind this school year. The remote learning center is located at 5834 W Augusta St. Chicago, IL 60651 healthy food options served daily.
GNC remote learning center is open Monday – Friday 8:45 – 330pm. For more info and to register please call 773-786-0249. Space is limited.
Seniors are some of Austin’s most vulnerable population making up about 14% of our community. Good Neighbor Wellness Workers are staff specifically dedicated to supporting seniors however they can. Wellness visits provide additional support to our seniors by assisting them with tasks such as applying for government benefits, picking up prescriptions, or grocery shopping. To reserve a wellness visit please call 773-286-0249 and we will coordinate a time and day that works best for everyone.
What to expect?
At a wellness visit you should expect the Good Neighbor Outreach team to discuss your needs, provide prayer + encouragement and overall check on your well-being.
Organize to improve your neighborhood! The Good Neighbor Campaign can work with your block to identify leaders and passionate residents to form a block club. Block clubs can be effective for creating safe spaces for youth, identifying areas of concern, and beautifying the block.
They give residents an opportunity to work together to find solutions to problems such as litter or gang activity and can also ensure that seniors are safe and have access to services they need. Call 773-786-0249 today to get us out on your block.
Here are just a few activities we provide!
