PlayStreets in Chicago!

PlayStreets Initiative brings virtual programming to Chicago youth!

PlayStreets is just one of many initiatives the Department of Public Health leads as part of Healthy Chicago 2.0, a plan to advance health equity across communities in Chicago by bridging service gaps and looking at root causes for disparities in health outcomes. In partnerships with community-based organizations across Chicago, PlayStreets encourages community residents to lead active and healthy lifestyles through the creation of safe, fun, and accessible spaces that promote physical wellness and healthy communities, provide additional health services, and strengthen community relationships by engaging community leaders and its residents.

In 2020, BUILD will serve as the PlayStreet's Delegate Agency to provide seed funding, materials, technical assistance, and implementation support to Implementing CBOs within the South Regions of Chicago.
