Where We Work

Parkway Gardens is located on King Drive on the South Side of Chicago, stretching from 63rd to 66th Streets. It lines the most dangerous block in Chicago, where 19 people were shot between June 2011 and June 2014. The former home of First Lady Michelle Obama and prominent rapper Chief Keef, Parkway Gardens sits near the boundary of several gangs’ territory, leading to high levels of violence. However, the number of shootings has decreased recently, leaving residents hopeful about the neighborhood’s future.
