Our MissionNLEN is a proud member of the North Lawndale Community Coordinating Council, revitalizing North Lawndale through bold, community-led initiatives.

The North Lawndale Employment Network’s mission is to improve the earnings potential of the North Lawndale community through innovative employment initiatives that lead to economic advancement and an improved quality of life for residents.

We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to work! More importantly, we also believe that our community flourishes when good jobs give residents both paychecks and self-worth.

We help unemployed and underemployed people in the North Lawndale neighborhood and beyond prepare for, find, and succeed at their jobs. Our clients are motivated, trained, equipped, and ready to work—qualities that employers value. We offer donors the chance to invest in an organization with a stellar track record of changing individual lives and improving the community’s quality of life, one person at a time, one job at a time.
