Corazón Community Services Board and Staff would like to welcome Esteban Rodriguez as the New Executive Director/Chief Executive Officer.

Esteban Rodriguez will be re-joining the organization in which he began his professional non-profit career. His journey as a youth participant, a youth worker with B.L.A.S.T., a health director, and a board member has allowed him to bring all the perspectives to continue building and leading Corazón Community Services onto our next chapter.

Esteban holds a Masters in Public Administration from Baruch College through his National Urban Fellowship and a Bachelors in Psychology from the University of Illinois at Chicago. Esteban will bring over 16 years of non-profit experience in fields of Youth, Health, Violence Prevention, Criminal Justice Reform, Housing, and Education. But his most captivating experience is that of growing up in Cicero and bringing his extensive community knowledge, perspective, and vision to better serve the heart of our community.

Please, join us in welcoming Esteban back to where his journey began.

He can be reached at [email protected]

From youth participant to Executive Director.

-------------------

La mesa directiva y el personal de Corazón Community Services desean dar la bienvenida a Esteban Rodríguez como nuevo director ejecutivo.

Esteban Rodríguez se reincorporará a la organización en la que inició su carrera profesional sin fines de lucro. Su viaje como participante juvenil, trabajador juvenil con B.L.A.S.T., director de salud y miembro de la mesa directiva le ha permitido traer todas las perspectivas para continuar construyendo y liderando Corazón Community Services en nuestro próximo capítulo.

Esteban tiene una Maestría en Administración Pública de Baruch College a través de su National Urban Fellowship y una Licenciatura en Psicología de la Universidad de Illinois en Chicago. Esteban aportará más de 16 años de experiencia sin fines de lucro en los campos de la juventud, la salud, la prevención de la violencia, la reforma de la justicia penal, la vivienda y la educación. Pero su experiencia más cautivadora es la de crecer en Cicero y aportar su amplio conocimiento, perspectiva y visión de la comunidad para servir mejor al corazón de nuestra comunidad.

Por favor, únase a nosotros para darle la bienvenida a Esteban de regreso a donde comenzó su viaje.

Puede ser contactado en [email protected]

As a community-focused impact organization, Corazon Community Services empowers the Latinx communities of Cicero and Berwyn. Their events and services are setting an example of how to adapt and respond to a community's changing needs.
Corazon Community Services is sponsoring a vaccination event on Thursday, September 14th from 9:00-3:00. We hope to see you there!
Today was another day that demonstrates the power of community-driven solutions to heal and transform our neighborhoods through culturally-informed comprehensive violence prevention practices, programs, and services. Over 75 community leaders, providers, and government officials came together to share best practices, recommend policy, and forge relationships.

“We know that many organizations across the state are helping us get to zero but might not have adequate funding to further their work. These grants will aid the creation of transformative projects that advance health equity and our plan to end the HIV epidemic in Illinois. We’re particularly grateful for the support of Alphawood Foundation, which spurred individual donations through a challenge grant.” - John Peller, AFC President/CEO
