Supporting Small Businesses & Workers
on Chicago's West Side
NOW MORE THAN EVER, WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT.
Providing essential resources to help small and micro-businesses and workers on the west side of Chicago is vital now more than ever. West Side Forward has been working virtually nonstop to support entrepreneurs and workers during the pandemic and social unrest.
From providing technical assistance to apply for unemployment benefits, to counseling businesses on deciphering the vast array of funding sources to webinars on getting through this pandemic.
This work has magnified the needs of the communities we serve.
Now more than ever it is critical that resources and investments are made in communities that have been plagued with years of disinvestment and are now being ravished by the worst pandemic in the nation's history.
