The 713 Community Empowerment Group (CEG) was created as a direct, grassroots response to the concerns of the community. Established to support the low-income and diverse residents of Chicago, the 713 CEG strives to improve the economic and social well-being of the community by empowering its residents through education, advocacy and innovation.
The work of this organization is driven by residents, advocates, and leaders who believe in the revitalization of their neighborhood. A place where positive economic and social opportunities abound and residents are proud to call it their home!
In addition to building the Marion Garner Community Center, 713 CEG will provide and collaborate on numerous programs in the areas of economic empowerment, youth enrichment, adult education, and community solidarity.
Education, empowerment, and innovation drive our approach to community development. We see these as the keys to prolonged success.
The 713 Community Empowerment Group is committed to providing programs and services needed for residents to achieve their own personal definition of success.
