Vision & Mission

SAMSUNG

Background:

The onset of violence within our community has created an environment in which we are “Afraid to answer our doors, Afraid to Speak Out and Afraid to take action”. We can no longer be held as prisoners within our community; we must take a stand and unite to transform our community back to a “Safe Haven”. If we all share the knowledge we have available to each other, then we can all become better advocates for a stronger community.

Vision:

The vision for our website is to be the breath of the southeast side communities by telling the
story of who we are now, where we want to be, and where we are going. Chicago southeast
side is made up of multicultural communities therefore this website is the one resource that
houses all the community’s attributes together, creating an intercultural understanding and
respect by sharing our triumph and struggles along with maintaining our individual uniqueness.

Our Mission Statement:

• Our mission is to motivate you to form a better understanding of yourself through
enhancing your awareness and accessibility to the various activities, events, and
resources that are found within your own communities and neighborhoods.

• This website is made to be a supplement to the community leaders, organizations, and
residents’ social media outlet. By placing their information on a broader platform to
showcase to a large exclusive audience while they maintain an intimate relationship with
their personal audience on their social media outlet. This exclusive-to-personal sharing
of community information is to decrease the communication gap but increase more
resident’s awareness to be a part of your community enrichment and stability, through
simply using community services and/or volunteering within your community or
surrounding communities.

• Since the southeast side is composed of various multicultural communities, the website
provides a great opportunity to showcase our pride and uniqueness as one whole
community.

• The website also promotes an understanding of our shared dreams and visions that will
build a unity to create allies throughout the southeast side as we work together to
strengthen our voices to stimulate and secure changes throughout our communities and
neighborhoods.
