Englewood

House Keeping

The Anti-Eviction Campaign scouts out abandoned homes and arranges for people to live in them, matching “homeless people with peopleless homes.” “It’s not necessarily about what’s right or what ought to happen, but fundamental human dignity.”

Fame

In many ways, Libby looks like other troubled schools in Englewood. But for the past four years, all students have had the opportunity to be part of the spring musical, the annual culmination of the school’s extensive arts program.

Common Law

When the Guardian Angels are not putting their lives at risk on the streets, they are holding self-defense workshops to teach others how to protect themselves.

Making a Home in Englewood

In Englewood, where vacancies and foreclosures are common and neighborhood hangouts are scarce, one space, a kind of brick loft on the corner of 59th and Green, may end up as what its owner calls “a true neighborhood spot.”

Community R.A.G.E.

The community activist group Resident Association of Greater Englewood (R.A.G.E) pursues resident-driven initiatives in education and economic development.
