We prevent and address the impact of domestic violence by supporting both survivors and those who cause harm to break the cycle of violence.
We connect initiatives to develop pathways for a skilled and inclusive health workforce to provide stable and living-wage jobs while creating better quality and accessible care.
We work to end homelessness in Chicago by advocating for stronger, more coordinated systems that provide stable housing.
We build the capacity of our city’s strong network of Jewish-led health providers, advocates and services so their resources are more easily within reach to all Chicagoans who need them.
The tools we use to create change
Our tools are designed to advance our priority areas. Whether used individually or in some combination, our tools allow us to go deeper within an issue to create real, lasting change.
Through advocacy, Michael Reese pushes for lasting change by advancing policies and systems that improve health.
Our grantmaking tool accelerates and strengthens solutions to improve the health of Chicagoans most affected by systemic inequities.
Incubation allows us to take risks on new, experimental or proven ideas that hold promise to change the future of health.
