Faith Invested. Communities Uplifted.

A helping hand can transform a life…the life of someone who can, in turn, spin adversity into something beautiful – like a cultured pearl – and bring new hope to our community.

This is our model for change on Chicago’s South Side. IPCDF is an organization of volunteers creating a ripple effect of service that will improve high school graduation rates, reduce crime, and end joblessness in our communities.

Together, we can empower people. We can activate a giving spirit in others. And we can show our neighbors-in-need that someone cares. Are you ready to join in and catch our wave?

Our charitable efforts encompass  the Bronzeville, Douglas, Englewood, Grand Boulevard, Hyde Park, Kenwood, Oakland, and Washington Park neighborhoods.
