COMPLEMENTARY EFFORTS IN WEST PULLMAN
We are proud to support and champion the work of other organizations in West Pullman that are working to improve the quality of life, commercial viability and human connectivity of the community.
The 119th Corridor Plan: The 119th Street Corridor stretches four blocks north and south of 119th Street (from I-57 to Union Avenue). The vision of the 119th Street Corridor is to attract jobs, industry and resources in order to create a vital economic area on the Far South Side of Chicago and support the diverse residential neighborhoods in the surrounding community. Habitat Chicago is proud to be a partner in this plan, spearheaded by Far South Community Development Corporation.
South Halsted Neighborhood Marketplace: The annual eight-Week South Halsted Neighborhood Market hosted by the Far South Community Development Corporation Food Access Program has been growing in participation each year since its inception in 2015. The Market is a combination of activities for the far south side neighborhoods including Morgan Park, West Pullman, Washington Heights, Roseland, and Beverly. Activities include a Farmers’ Market, family fun and games, live musical performances and contributions from local businesses.
The Salvation Army Kroc Community Center: The Kroc Center in West Pullman is the largest community center in Illinois and the largest Kroc Center in the continental U.S. It provides an extensive amount of programs for the community and has quickly become a daily destination for many south side residents since opening in 2012.
