LivingWorks seeks to foster holistic development in local elementary school students by addressing the needs of the whole child through academic enrichment and extracurricular activities that allow students to explore their own interests and potential. Started as a program of Living Water Community Church in 1994, LivingWorks began operation as a distinct 501c3 in 2010 in order to expand the after-school program’s potential for development and community impact. Since that time, LivingWorks has connected with a number of community organizations that allows it to provide quality programming to children in the Rogers Park neighborhood of Chicago.
Our vision is a thriving community, filled with lifelong learners, where every voice is valued.
Our mission is to develop the whole person, cultivating within each of our students a desire to learn, and equipping them through mentoring, one-on-one teaching, and play.
