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.

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 2021 we will help 200 economically-disadvantaged Chicago high school students achieve success.

Stay Strong, Stay Vigilant, and Stay Healthy!

A Hero Among Us

HFS Chicago Scholars’ very own 9th grader Jahkil J. finds a way to help others in need. When he was 8 years old he founded a nonprofit, Project I Am to provide relief to the homeless. He is recognized by Marvel Hero Project, a new Disney+ series. Learn more about his story.

HFS SERVICE DAY 2021

Each year, HFS Chicago Scholars give back to the community by way of Project Thanksgiving. This is a time when the entire HFS family comes together to support others in need by creating and donating Thanksgiving baskets so that families in need will not be without food during the holidays.
