A Holistic Approach: Making a Difference through “Adopting” the Brighton Park Neighborhood

Through a partnership established in 2013 with United Way of Metropolitan Chicago, Mesirow is committed to the Brighton Park neighborhood on Chicago’s southwest side. We leverage our corporate resources to further United Way’s bold goal: increasing the graduation rate of Kelly High School students to 90 percent.

“It has been very clear that our ability to move the needle alongside United Way has been a marriage of the funding and hands-on volunteerism of our employees. Just one approach or the other cannot have the same impact– we need to put in our time and our resources to maximize the benefits to the neighborhood."

-Richard Price, Mesirow Financial Executive Chairman
