Our Mission

It is the Mission of Chicago’s Citizens for Change (CCC) to reduce youth violence through programs and partnerships that strengthen communities and promote restorative peace-making by supporting families and youth who have experienced loss due to violence.

To ensure that no family walks this journey alone, CCC is committed to building a citywide response network to support families and loved ones of homicide victims and to providing opportunities for organizations, social services, and justice systems to work together in a coordinated effort to serve Chicago’s citizens.
