Your immense support over the years has empowered and inspired the Board and Staff of Corazon, enabling us to serve thousands of youth and families each year. During the past nine and a half years, Corazon has made huge strides in community safety, health education and leadership opportunities for youth.

Today, our momentum and progress is at risk. The Cicero community will lose $969,000 in violence prevention funding due to State of Illinois budget cuts on November 1st, $610,000 of which are dollars allocated to Corazon. This means that across Cicero and Berwyn, 312 LESS YOUTH will receive services related to violence prevention on a weekly basis.

Now, your support for Cicero's youth and Corazon is critical and crucial.

Please join the Board of Directors and Staff of Corazón Community Services on Wednesday, November 14th at the National Museum of Mexican Art in Pilsen for our Break the Violence Fundraiser. Enjoy dinner, cocktails, live music, a special performance from Corazón's Break The Violence Movement and the Museum's Art and Store.

Very much looking forward to seeing you.

Kind regards,

Mary Johnson
Executive Director
