Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 06, 2017
Tunnell Insurance Agency, a full-service insurance and financial services provider serving the families of greater Chicago with an ongoing community enrichment program, has announced a new partnership with nonprofit Growing Home. Through fieldwork, classroom instruction and personalized case management, Growing Home brings healthy food options to underserved neighborhoods as they prepare participants to enter full-time, stable jobs in Chicago’s food and farming industries. Readers wishing to support this worthy cause may now donate at https://www.crowdrise.com/growing-a-healthier-community.
With a guiding vision of creating healthy people and communities, Growing Home been helping people find meaningful careers through skills learned by farming for fifteen years. In fact, in 2016 a full 95% of their program graduates secured employment. Governed by a belief that everyone deserves to have a good job and everyone deserves to eat well, Growing Home provides on-the-job experience to people with employment barriers. They start people on the path to self-sufficiency by using their unique model to provide economic stability, career support and healthy food options to neighborhoods with the greatest need. Growing Home’s farms are located on the South side of Chicago so they may provide nutritious food and opportunity to an area with high rates of unemployment and poverty. With sustainable economic resources and better health, neighbors are able to participate in the rejuvenation of their community.
“We are honored to do what we can to help Growing Home and the fantastic work they do,” said John Tunnell, owner of Tunnell Insurance Agency. “The goal of our Community Program is to grow healthier communities by supporting worthy grassroots organizations and we really hope everyone pitches in to help Growing Home and all the people they serve.”
