Vision & Values
By taking a whole person, whole community approach, Claretian Associates strives to improve the South Chicago neighborhood by initially focusing on housing security and secondarily, by tackling a wide spectrum of interconnected needs including health, income, and education, among others. Three pillars of focus that direct Claretian Associates’ work are housing, convening around critical issues and violence prevention. We address seven areas of concentration to guide our community building approach. Our programs are designed to not only provide safe, quality, affordable housing, but also to provide services to support families as they work to become more stable and enhance their quality of life.
