WELCOME!

Vincent Guider - North Lawndale Kinship Initiative Executive Director

There's a place for you on this journey of Kinship.

Given the racial and religious divsion and political hostility we are experiencing in society today, Kinship Initiative friends have come together to set a different course. Our community development partnership consists of churches, schools, organizations, elected officials, businesses and individual citizens in North Lawndale and Old St. Pat's Church that are engaged to build community all the while addressing critical issues we face in our city.

We obviously differ in many ways. We are city dwellers, suburbanites, Protestants, Catholics, non-believers, less and more wealthy, younger, older and in-between. We come from the west, south and north sides of the city and multiple ethnic groups are represented. However, despite our differences we share a desire to be in relationship first and foremost as we work at contributing to the common good.

Come cross boundaries with us. Join our dialog, dreaming, planning, work, play and prayer that we hope will model Chicago city life at its best.
