What We Do
At The Resurrection Project, we believe that social change starts at the community level. When individuals feel safe and secure, they are more likely to invest in their community, making it a better
place for all. We support this development by providing services that stabilize and protect families, by helping them acquire assets and improve their financial health, and by mobilizing them to
advocate for long-lasting, positive change.
Help Families Build Financial Security
In order to build community wealth, we believe that it is our responsibility to support families so they can make financially sound decisions. We work with families to help them achieve financial
security and reach their goals by offering financial wellness workshops and services. Our programs help families improve their financial health by building credit, reducing debt, purchasing their
new home, avoiding foreclosure and much more.

Strengthen Families Through Domestic Violence Counseling (HOPE)
For over 29 years, The Resurrection Project has been committed to its mission of creating community ownership, building community wealth, and serving as stewards of community assets in
Chicago’s southwest neighborhoods.
In 1990, Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood was blighted by neglect and violence. A small group of frustrated residents band together with the goal of restoring peace, safety, and prosperity to their
community. Six local parishes contributed a total of $30,000 in seed money, and soon The Resurrection Project was established.
A small grassroots organization at the time, TRP’s first initiatives revolved around organizing other residents and transforming them into inspired leaders who advocated for clean and peaceful
streets, safe and affordable housing, and quality education and community resources. With the purchase of our first property in 1991, we were able to expand our work and employ three
interdependent strategies—property management, real estate development, and financial services and education—to begin helping local residents build financial security and wealth.
The organization achieved a milestone success in 1999, when TRP was named the lead agency for Pilsen in LISC Chicago’s New Communities Program, a national comprehensive community
development model advocated by the Local Initiatives Support Corporation. As lead agency for Pilsen, TRP convened over a dozen neighborhood organizations and agencies to form the Pilsen
Planning Committee, whose Quality of Life Plan for Pilsen laid out a five-year revitalization plan for the community.
Today, our aspirations are broader, our impact farther-reaching. Since the early 2000s, our real estate development efforts have reached new levels of capacity: projects like Casa Puebla, a $14.8
million development that created 74 units of affordable housing, and Casa Maravilla, a $20 million development that created 72 units of affordable senior housing, have drastically transformed the
neighborhoods in which they are located. Through targeted investments in our communities, abandoned buildings and lots are now home to hundreds of residents, providing them with affordable
housing in a safe and inclusive environment.
Since our founding, The Resurrection Project has grown to secure $537 million in community investments through homes for ownership, rental housing, and community services throughout
Chicago’s southwest neighborhoods and the western suburbs. Through an innovative model that blends community development, advocacy, and human services, we continue the commitment of
our original founders—a commitment to revitalizing blighted neighborhoods and ensuring that the surrounding communities have access to the resources and tools necessary for their sustained
Since its founding, The Resurrection Project has grown from a grassroots advocacy organization into a pillar of Chicago’s southwest communities. Learn about some of the major milestones that

Development of Casa Maravilla, La Casa Student Housing and Resource Center, and Health Sciences Career Academy
In its 20th year, TRP raises $20 million to construct 72 units of affordable senior housing & secures $8.9 million for the development of La Casa Student Housing and Resource Center in Pilsen.
After 6 years of helping program participants work towards post-secondary degrees, financial independence and professional development, the organization made the difficult decision to conclude
the housing portion of La Casa’s program in June of 2019. We are proud of all the remarkable accomplishments that our students have been able to achieve.
