The Woodlawn Effect
Sometimes in life, we find ourselves with a chance to do something great. For some of us, opportunity knocks more often—but if you grow up in a community trapped in the unrelenting cycle of poverty, those moments can be few and far between. So what happens when you’re given the chance to help one person achieve something great? When you seize the opportunity to support a community to change its course? When your cause has an effect that resonates through our entire city? That’s The Woodlawn Effect.
It may seem a great burden, but we know it can be done. But we also know we can’t do it alone—that’s why we need you. Together, we can make the most of this great opportunity. Because together, we are The Woodlawn Effect.
