“The thoughtfulness, the continuous quality improvement, the focus on evidence, and a very highly trained staff – these are all of the things that make One Hope United an ideal Get IN Chicago partner.”
– Get IN Chicago Executive Director Toni Irving

We were thrilled that One Hope United also chose to honor Get IN Chicago with their 2017 Leadership in Giving award! One Hope United is one of our five grantee organizations providing SPARCS as part of our Strengthening Youth through a Network of Care (SYNC) initiative.  SPARCS is an evidence-based, cognitive behavioral therapy for helping teens cope with traumas. With better coping skills, teens are less likely to turn to violence to solve their issues. As part of the honor, One Hope United produced a video about the SPARCS program and how it helps youth cope with trauma to reduce violence.
