"South Side"

8 of 35

Many buildings are being bought, demolished, rehabbed by the Comer Foundation. This site across from the school on 72nd St. will be turned into a parking lot for the teachers so the current lot can be made into a playground for the children. The Comer Foundation is establishing its own building company that is going to use local residents who want to be a part of the change in their own neighborhood. The Foundation is paying for them to become part of PACT (Pre-Apprenticeship Training Program) a city program which teachers residents basic building and rehabbing skills necessary to obtain an union apprenticeship. Anyone who completes the program successfully will be guaranteed a year position rebuilding the neighborhood.
