Congratulations to Christa Hamilton on her first 100 days as CEO of UCAN Chicago

Congratulations to Christa Hamilton on completing her first 100 days as CEO of UCAN Chicago! According to a recent Chicago Sun-Times article, she is the first African American and first woman to lead the West Side social service agency.  Founded 152 years ago as a Civil War orphanage, the North Lawndale organization serves 21,000 youth who have suffered trauma, through foster care, violence prevention, mental health, workforce development and other services. As the Sun-Times noted, Christa is a “star in the social services sphere,” and we are proud to consider her a dear friend and colleague.
