Focal Point community campus will provide valuable programs and services to more than 400,000 residents in the Southwest Chicago communities, while serving as a national model for community development. The campus will reside on the 11-acre lot at 31st and Kedzie in Southwest Chicago, the former site of the Washburne Trade School.
It will deliver a combination of retail, wellness, education, arts and recreation services customized to meet the needs of local residents.
Chicago Southwest Development Corporation - along with leaders from Saint Anthony Hospital - is leading this project that will serve as a model to change the face of community development across the country.
Together, these organizations have a legacy in the Chicago area of serving as leaders, staying true to their inclusive, neighborhood driven philosophy to strengthen the community through the power of partnership and quality health care that leaves no one behind.
It's this future-thinking and collaborative philosophy that led to the vision for the new community campus and its inventive model.
