Health care institutions, residents, educators, non-profits, businesses, government agencies and faith-based institutions that work, live and congregate on Chicago’s West Side have come together as West Side United to make their neighborhoods stronger, healthier and more vibrant places to live.
West Side United is excited to announce the open application process for interested elementary schools seeking supports to create a school-based community hub. West Side United would like to leverage its collaborative hospital assets and provide in-kind services at one West Side elementary school over the next 2 years.
West Side United believes that four impact areas – Economic Vitality, Education, Health & Healthcare and Neighborhood & Physical Environment – are the keys to reduce the life expectancy gap between downtown and the West Side of Chicago.
To build community health and economic wellness on Chicago’s West Side and build healthy, vibrant neighborhoods.
