Chicago's "Christian" Churches

(click on the map above to see "full-sized" version)

There are at least 454 Churches that consider themselves generally "Christian." Like the Baptist churches, many of these are located in impoverished communities. Yet some have more congregations in relatively affluent areas. In either case, church leaders can be be tying "scripture and service, and pointing members to tutor/mentor programs that already exist, or to neighborhoods, where new programs need to be created."

Please take a look also at the blog entry for Chicago's Places of Worship for more information on why this is important, and on how faith communities can use the T/MC's strategies to increase the reach, frequency and consistency of tutoring and mentoring programs.

And please visit the T/MC website to get information about programs in all parts of the region. And then head to the T/MC Program Locator, or the Interactive Zip Code Map to find locations of programs that can use your volunteer or donor help.
