Heartland Alliance for Human Needs & Human Rights is a global anti-poverty and human rights organization that has been tackling society’s toughest challenges since 1888. Today, we serve the most marginalized people in society, including immigrants and refugees, people experiencing homelessness, and survivors of violence and torture. We believe that society is better for everyone when all of us can participate, prosper, and reach our full potential.
Heartland Alliance coordinates READI (Rapid Employment and Development Initiative) Chicago, a network of community-based organizations on Chicago’s South and West Sides that engage individuals at the highest risk of becoming victims or perpetrators of gun violence in an 18-month wage-subsidized transitional job (TJ) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) program, followed by up to six months of follow-up case management and coaching support. The goals of READI Chicago are to: decrease shootings and homicides among those at highest risk of gun violence; create new opportunities for these same individuals to change their life trajectory and decrease their involvement with the criminal justice system; and help build an infrastructure at the community level to promote long-term safety and opportunity in Chicago’s most impoverished communities. The Crime Lab at the University of Chicago leads the program evaluation and we also partner with the City of Chicago, the Cook County Sheriff’s Office, and the Illinois Department of Corrections. The initiative launched in Fall 2017 in Austin and West Garfield Park, North Lawndale, and West Englewood and Englewood.
