HFS Chicago Scholar: 2021 Annual Report Cover

Since our 1993 founding, HFS has served as an agent for social change in Chicago’s most underserved communities. We work to support the educational aspirations of hard-working high school students so that they can create a better Chicago, rich with diversity, racial equity, and economic opportunity. HFS is a powerful force to help overcome the injustices and implicit biases that influence false perceptions based on skin color and socioeconomic status.
