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.
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.
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.
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.
