HATS OFF  to 9th Ward Volunteers for participating in an important event !!!

The 9th Ward Alderman's office, volunteers & the Chicago Fire Department worked together on Saturday May 22, 2010 to ensure the installation of 2 to 3 new smoke detectors in each home  with a life span of 10 years.

The Alderman would like to thank our seniors and the constituents for their cooperation and assisting in the success of the program in our ward.

*Residents that did not receive a smoke detector, please feel free to come into the Ward  office and pick up 2 detectors while supplies last.

SGA enables Chicago children, families and communities who face great challenges with few resources to see their potential and discover new paths to success. This approach has been consistently successful because of SGA's track record of excellence in developing innovative programing, finding the necessary resources to provide services, identifying the right partnerships, and tracking, measuring and improving our outcomes through data-driven improvements. SGA provides a wide range of social services in some of Chicago's most challenged and consistently underserved communities, and creates long-term and community-wide change.

Roseland Children's Initiative

On Chicago's south side, Roseland, is one of America's most disadvantaged neighborhoods, with levels of poverty, violence, unemployment, prisoner re-entry, poor health and low education attainment that vastly exceed City averages. SGA's Roseland Children's Initiative (RCI) leverages an array of public and private partnerships and collaborations to create long-term, sustainable change. SGA is the only Illinois nonprofit to be awarded the prestigious Promise Neighborhood Planning Grant from the US Department of Education for the RCI.
