Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle visited Erie Neighborhood House on Tuesday to witness first hand the heart of the community. Erie House provides award-winning education programs to a diverse group of students in low-income communities. Established in 1870, Erie House evolved into one of the city’s first comprehensive social service agencies. Erie's programs reach over 4,500 participants annually.

President Preckwinkle visited with the Erie House’s teachers in their classrooms along with Executive Director Celena Roldan; former Erie House Board President and Board Member Mark Jolicoeur; Board Member Victor Sy Nelson; and Senior Director of Programs Maureen Hellwig to discuss the Erie House mission as well as funding options.

Erie House would like to thank President Preckwinkle for touring Erie’s facilities and asking questions about how Erie supports the community. We look forward in working together in order to facilitate a just and inclusive society by strengthening low income families gaining access to critical resources throughout Cook County.

Thank you,
