Grace and Peace

Program Description

Grace and Peace Community Fellowship (GAPF) was born in 1983 as a church plant in the Northwest side of the City of Chicago, and incorporated in 1985. Thirteen years later, through a generous donation from a private donor, a two-story, former Lutheran school in the Hermosa neighborhood was purchased to house the GAP Community Center. Since its inception, the GAP Community Center has a long history of hosting youth and children programs the GAP church embraced the Safe Haven program in December 2010 and named it GAPademics. At the GAP we know how important it is for the Hermosa community children to have a place to go after school where they will receive the assistance needed to improve their learning skills but also a fun and safe place to be during the dangerous summer months in the city.
