NY Times Features Raymundo '87's Work on Chicago's South Side

November 9, 2012

Raul Raymundo '87 was recently featured in a New York Times article for his work as cofounder and director of The Resurrection Project, which serves Latino families on the South Side of Chicago. The Resurrection Project has been recognized for its new student dormitory, believed to be the first of its kind in the U.S.--rather than targeting any particular college, the dorm is meant for any and all commuter students from the South Side who need a safe and quiet place to eat, sleep and study. The Resurrection Project, which Raymundo founded in a church basement in 1989, has developed a significant support apparatus including over 600 low-income housing units, two child-care centers, a health clinic at a local school, youth recreation programs and support services for immigrants.
