Humboldt Park campus joins Hurricane relief efforts

The City of Chicago and Mayor Rahm Emanuel set up a welcome center for Hurricane evacuees at the Humboldt Park field house located at 1400 North Sacramento Avenue. The relief effort supports residents of Puerto Rico who have self evacuated, relocated to Chicago’s Humboldt park area, and are in need of resources. Wright College Humboldt Park attended with City Colleges of Chicago district office, supplying educational resources, along other organizations such as FEMA, Greater Chicago Food Depository, Salvation Army, Puerto Rican Cultural Center, Chicago Department of Family and Support Services, Chicago Housing Authority, Chicago Public Schools, Doctors without Borders, and many others. Each organization contributed by providing food shelter, clothing, health care and a host of other services to ensure people are able to sustain themselves while here in Chicago. The welcome center is not limited to those from Puerto Rico, but also for victims affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Maria, and even the recent earthquake disaster in Mexico city.
