Mission Statement

The Black EcoSystem is a non profit organization in Chicago that focuses on revitalizing struggling communities, and empowering families and individuals directly affected by the struggle. The Founder Candice Cunningham grew up in West Englewood, Chicago, one of the most violent neighborhoods on the southside. After realizing that African-American communities are in a crisis, she decided to pull together resources to help solve the following problems: - Poverty - Gun Violence - No Jobs or Opportunities - Police Violence - Flawed Educational System - Family Issues - Mental Health Issues This led to the creation of the BLACK ECOSYSTEM, which focuses on collaboration. "We must all come together and contribute what we can. Then we must direct resources where they are most needed because all these issues have to be handled concurrently."
