Community Connect always offers resources you can use… and this week, it's about a new place to find peace and love in Chicago.
The Gandhi King Center for Nonviolence officially opened Wednesday at the Center of Englewood building on Marquette & Green… named for Dr. Martin Luther King Junior and one of his guiding lights and philosophical influences, Mahatma Gandhi.
The center will provide holistic approaches to promote peace in the area, opening from 3-10pm daily as a place for young people and the community to gather with basketball programming and a full-time coach, a 24/7 crisis hotline plus meditation counselors, yoga classes and more
15 partner organizations joined together to provide services at the center, including Shepherd’s Hope, who donated the space for the center alongside their food pantry and just launched their mobile food pantry to deliver food to those who can’t make it to the location.
Our community moves forward best when we get the help we need and give the help we can!
