God’s Gang

Carolyn Thomas founded God’s Gang more than 30 years ago with a breakfast program at St. Mary’s AME Church for children living in and around the Robert Taylor Homes housing project. Some of the children started singing in the choir and praise dancing; eventually they named themselves “God’s Gang.”  When the Robert Taylor Homes were demolished in 2007, God’s Gang moved to several locations: a Community Greenhouse on E. 83rd street; Karaal Farms in Dawson, IL; and Hidden Haven Farm in Union Pier, Michigan. The EAN site for God’s Gang is currently housed in office space provided by True Fellowship Baptist Church. Their primary activities are urban agricultural and landscaping, African dance and crafts, employment training, after school and cultural awareness programs. godsgang1.net/
