Program areas at Heartland Alliance for Human Needs and Rights

READI Chicago: The Rapid Employment and Development Initiative (READI Chicago) is an innovative transitional jobs and cognitive behavioral therapy program. READI Chicago is designed to target those at highest risk of being victims or perpetrators of gun violence, with the goals of decreasing violence involvement among this population; creating an alternate path and viable opportunities for them to change their life trajectory and decrease criminal justice involvement; and helping build a community-level infrastructure that promotes long-term safety and opportunity in Chicago's most impoverished communities. Heartland Alliance is leading and managing a network of community-based organizations on Chicago's South and West Sides to implement READI Chicago.
