Help us support our community during this time of need.
COVID-19 has impacted all of us immensely, and many vulnerable populations are at a greater disadvantage when it comes to health status and access to resources. This is where #TheTakeBack comes in.
We are a 501 C3 anti-violence organization focused on the youth of Chicago’s South Side. Since 2014, we have provided more than 3,000 youth with resources and supplies to fuel safe play, interact in violence-free spaces, and prepare them for the coming school year. Though #TheTakeBack has previously focused on back-to-school-related efforts to support Chicago’s youth, we realize that the needs of our communities have changed along with our circumstances. Because of this, we are adjusting the way we support Chicago’s South Side as we adjust to living differently during this pandemic.
To lend a hand, #TheTakeBack wants to provide 300 masks to households in our communities, along with scholarships that assist with providing supplies needed for everyday living and learning. We have set a goal of $3,000 to gather and distribute sufficient numbers of resources and supplies by the summer months.
With your help, we can continue showing love to our city by rallying around the people who make it special.
