Working to improve the quality of life in Rogers Park since 1952
Multicultural Resource Center
As one of the point-of-entry neighborhoods in Chicago, Rogers Park boasts one of the most ethnically and linguistically diverse populations in the city, with over 38 languages and with people from over 82 countries, according to many published articles and journals. The Metropolitan Chicago Immigration Fact Book, published by Roosevelt University, lists the community areas of Rogers Park, Edgewater and West Ridge as three of the top five areas where newcomers have increasingly favored to make their new homes, with a dramatic increase during the last decade.
The Center's focus is to provide our new neighbors with support, advocacy and referral services to accommodate the range of their needs. Our mission is to improve the quality of life for our newest neighbors and introduce them to our extensive partnership network of non-profit organizations.
The area of services includes:
- Housing issues
- Labor law
- Immigration law
- Health care needs
- Other family services
