Leaders of the region's Latino community united with the Trust in Nuestro Futuro – “Our Future.” This initiative enables the Latino community to pool resources for greater impact in addressing problems of common concern. Nuestro Futuro's goals are to involve more Latinos in philanthropy, and to support the organizations and programs improving the quality of life of Latinos in metropolitan Chicago.
Research shows that providing quality educational programs to children under the age of five helps prepare them to excel in the classroom—ultimately leading to higher rates of high school graduation, college and higher wages. Nuestros Niños is an initiative that supports community-based early care and educational programs that help provide the foundation for the academic excellence of Latino children.
