Grantee Spotlight 🌟 Youth Conservation Corps!

LCCF is proud to support the work of YCC, who empowers and mentors young adults to succeed through education, life skills training, career pathways, and environmental stewardship.

Impact story:
At the age of 17, Jonnatan was headed down the wrong path. Eventually, he dropped out of high school and was kicked out of
his parent's house. He was unhappy and felt isolated living on his own. Jonnatan realized this wasn’t how he wanted to live his life.

When he heard from a friend that at YCC he could earn his high school equivalency, receive an NCCER construction certification, and get paid to do so, he didn’t hesitate to apply.

During his time at YCC, Jonnatan worked extremely hard and during the height of the pandemic, he was able to attain his high school equivalency, receive support through on-site counseling and life skills which he attributes to helping him become a better, more compassionate person. Jonnatan received practical on-site construction training and quickly became a student leader, assisting and teaching fellow construction classmates.

Since graduating from YCC, he’s started his own business doing remodeling, drywall taping, and painting. His dream for the future is to scale up his operations to start doing bigger jobs and be
able to help fellow YCC graduates achieve their financial goals by joining his team. Jonnatan has also reconnected with his family and their relationship together is “better than ever."

Thank you, Youth Conservation Corps, for all of the great work you are doing in our community in Lake County!

We want to take this time to acknowledge all of the hard work being done by our local nonprofits and community groups in the aftermath of the Highland Park tragedy 💙

Thank you to these organizations (and many others!) for working above and beyond to serve our community and thank you to all donors who have given to the Lake County Community Crisis Relief Fund, enabling us to respond quickly with grant dollars.

Grantee Spotlight 🔦 Rebuilding Together!

LCCF is proud to support the efforts of Rebuilding Together North Suburban Chicago which seeks to repair homes, revitalize communities and rebuild lives.

Recently, RTNSC was able to support a homeowner who is a 22-year Vietnam veteran of the U.S Navy. With 100% loss of hearing in his right ear, partial loss of vision, and having suffered several strokes, this homeowner has limited mobility and difficulty speaking. His wife also has disabilities, including very little use of her right hand, and is not able to lift more than five pounds.

Rebuilding Together North Suburban Chicago was able to fund and complete a much needed roof replacement, electrical repairs and roofline replacement and repairs. This family is so grateful to be living in a safe and functional home 🏘

Thank you Rebuilding Together for all of your great work in our Lake County community! 💙
