As summer winds down, we've been steadfast in our efforts to get out into the community and meet the residents of the ward. Whether it’s on their blocks in front of their homes, or the neighborhood grocery store. This is Mrs. Shriver, she’s an Englewood resident of the ward and avid supporter. We stopped by her house this past week to find out her thoughts on things in the community. When you listen directly to the residents, you’re able to put together a holistic vision for the ward. Thank you Mrs. Shriver for providing us with input that will undoubtedly help us move the ward forward. #6thWard #6thWardStrong #Englewood

Brown Sugar Bakery's Owner Fought For Success — And Now She Owns Her Own Building

Stephanie and Brown Sugar Bakery has been a staple and stalwart in our community since she opened her doors. As we revitalize the 75th street corridor, its businesses like hers that will help us become more vibrant and robust. If you’re a small business owner trying to expand your business or start one, the city has resources available for you. The Neighborhood Opportunity Fund is a great way to help bring your vision to life in a south or west side community. As we work to reverse the trends of divestment in our neighborhoods Brown Sugar Bakery is proof that businesses in fact can thrive in black communities. Congrats and job well done.

Seventeen years after opening Brown Sugar Bakery, owner Stephanie Hart has secured the keys to the building that is home to her bakery.

In 2012, 50% of the City of Chicago mental health clinics were closed. These closings adversely affected thousands of residents on the south and west side. This past week I had the opportunity to visit several mental health clinics across the city. We spoke at length with staff about what we as a council could do to best help keep these facilities open. It is imperative that we are funding them at levels that give them the ability to continue to provide services to the residents who need them most. Mental health services and resources are not just for the wealthy and well to do. The long-term effects of trauma can only be reversed by providing adequate care to the most vulnerable in our city. I would like to thank my colleagues; Ald. Samantha Nugent, Ald. Rossana Rodriguez-Sanchez, Ald. Byron Sigcho-Lopez, and Ald. Andre Vasquez for also touring the facilities. And I want to especially thank all the clinicians, social workers, and psych team members who met with us at Trilogy Behavioral Health, University of Illinois Miles Square Health Center, and Greater Lawn Mental Health Center. Your work is invaluable and we as a city are indebted to you.

A portion of this ward is located in Englewood and I am disappointed that no one has stepped forward to say the attack on the police did not occur within Englewood's boundaries. Alderman Sawyer, you should be leading the charge to have this corrected. Englewood has enough problems without you all attaching our community to crimes that did not happen within our boundaries. The cops were shot in Chicago Lawn community. Chicago Lawn is one of the 77 community areas of Chicago, Illinois. It is located on the southwest side of the city. Its community neighbors include Gage Park, West Englewood, Ashburn, and West Lawn. It is bounded by Bell Avenue on the east, Central Park Avenue on the west, 59th Street on the north, and 75th Street on the south, and is 13 km (8.1 mi) southwest of the Loop. Local citizens refer to the area as "Marquette Park," after the park in its center.
HI...are there any upcoming shredding events happening in the 6th Ward? TY
If you or someone you know is a Veteran and are experiencing or at risk of experiencing homelessness, this is a great resource. Of Color, Inc. provides job placement and connections to a variety of resources. Blessings!

Let's ask our alderman why they oppose common sense to***co control efforts. Inaction = death!!
The data are crystal clear: To***co is killing residents of the 6th ward and other black communities but the city council refuses to take the bold steps needed to protect black lives in Chicago. Let's ask our representatives why. Inaction = death!

Gas Station on 67th and Wentworth have you issued them a citation yet? Bad business? Who are these New Owners?
Bus stops in Englewood look like this! Terrible
I hope you added Englewood
With over 80 people shot this past weekend alone, perhaps the Health and Human Services Committee should focus on ending the gun violence rather than licensing a single intact female dog.
