Alderman Cochran started pursuing this initiative two years ago and saw it come into reality in October.  This is an outstanding accomplishment for the City Colleges, being the first in the nation to incorporate a CFWF on a college campus, utilizing the curricula and career offerings at the school to advance and improve the quality of life for residents who are interested in taking advantage of the new center.

The Hull House is one of the partners with the City of Chicago, LISC and three New Community Programs (Woodlawn, Washington Park Consortium and Teamwork Englewood).
