Where relationship and belonging foster
a confident sense of self and
a healthy reliance on others
Your contribution makes it possible for us to continue our mission in the Chicago Lawn community. Since its
inception in January of 2013, the MKC has creatively repurposed the former convent space into a youth center, built an experienced staff team, provided quality enrichment programming for third through eighth graders, and created a safe and welcoming space for young people to gather to build community. This is only possible because of generous gifts from people like you. Your donation will help expand programming at the Maria Kaupas Center, enabling more youth to benefit from critical after school activities focused on spirituality, community, and leadership.
