BROCK

B.R.O.C.K. Social Services agency provides energy utility assistance and weatherization services to low and moderate-income households. They are also a well-established base for environmentally-friendly service-oriented activities — such as gardening — that attempt to bridge the gap between youth and seniors.  B.R.O.C.K.  (an acronym for Building-up and Reaching Out to Chicagoland Kids) was founded by Edmond and Brenda Weil in 1992 to counter the negative influences of gangs and disproportionately high school dropout rates among youth in their community through mentorship and social enrichment programs. It’s work is mainly focused in Chicago’s 34th ward.
