I AM HFS
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.
“I am a minority student and a female and although this isn’t common in the engineering society, HFS taught me that regardless of who I am I deserve to be where I work hard to get.” – HFS Alum (2017) Alitzel Y., Washington University in St. Louis (2021)
HFS Alumni In Action – THANK YOU!
There are three HFS alumni working in the medical field, and two are on the front lines of the COVID-19 crises, making a difference in our community by caring for our sick.(Click picture-video)
If it were not for our supporters and greater HFS community, these young people may not have had the opportunity to serve and give back in this capacity during these difficult times.
HFS Chicago Scholars inspires us all and it is because of them, past, present, and future, that we continue our mission. It is through educational enrichment and lifelong mentoring that our students flourish in and out of the classroom. In 1993 HFS provided this opportunity to one little girl and now in 2020 we will help 200 economically-disadvantaged Chicago high school students achieve success.
Stay Strong, Stay Vigilant, and Stay Healthy!
