The Resurrection Project

Get directions »

Nearly 20 years ago, neighbors in Chicago’s Pilsen community began talking with new urgency about the blight, violence, and neglect they saw on their blocks.

Six of the community’s parishes helped residents turn the talking into action when they joined together and each contributed $5,000 in seed money to start a community organization to address these infecting problems – and The Resurrection Project, starting with one employee and a community full of concerns, was born.

Now two decades later, TRP has turned that initial $30,000 into over $200 million in community investment in the form of homes for ownership, rental housing, and community facilities (including 2 child care centers) in its target neighborhoods of Pilsen, Little Village, and Back of the Yards.

Its mission is to build relationships and challenge people to act on their faith and values to create healthy communities through organizing, education and community development.
