Mission
Fuller Park Community Development (FPCD) mission is threefold:

FPCD works to address the Housing, Education and Environmental issues that have kept our communities in poverty, disrepair and illiterate. FPCD exists to equip our residents with information, resources and education that provide them with the tools necessary to help move them out of poverty and live a better quality of life.




HOUSING

As a local Housing Resource Center for the City of Chicago's' Department of Housing we develop and provides affordable housing for low and very low-income families in our neighborhoods. We facilitate tenant and community based meetings. We train local residents how to establish tenant associations, to aid in the management of the buildings in which they live, and how to build and maintain block clubs.



EDUCATION

FPCD works to reduce the high unemployment, illiteracy and lack of technology, in our neighborhood through our Community Adult Learning Center South Point Academy. Southpoint Academy training consists of Family Literacy, Pre GED, Computer Literacy and Construction job trade skills.


ENVIROMENTAL

Eden Place Nature Center is our answer to a 1997 report by the city of Chicago citing Fuller Park as the most Lead contaminated neighborhood in the city. Eden Place Nature center is dedicated to educating community children and their parents about the environment they live in and how to better protect their children and families from indigenous pollutants and hazards. Earth sciences and land stewardship will be taught.
