We work at the intersection of Relationship, Research, and Restoration

Serving Our Communties During COVID-19

BECOME hosted three conversations with our partners (clients, funders, nonprofits, and community organizations) to explore how we can ensure that no one should fall through the cracks during the COVID-19 crisis. 

We learned what each other is doing to serve our communities through this extraordinary time. We are exploring ways we can build on the vital work happening to make sure EVERYONE who needs resources and connection has it.

Follow this link, COVID-19 Action, for information from our first meeting and on how to join in the next conversation.

Community - Driven Systems Design

Developing a new system is a complex and emotionally laden endeavor, requiring strategy, diverse stakeholder input and buy-in, historical and contextual knowledge, logic, research, and principled decision-making. Our systems focus rooted in Culturally Responsive Practice. Our model is designed to engage everyone in the community including those most difficult to reach. We ground our efforts in community and collective wisdom, facilitating processes that unearth solutions that the collective develops. With an evaluation focus as well, we track what works and what does not, helping to shape solutions and ensure that interventions and systems are effective. We are committed to actualization, liberation, and abundance for communities, especially those who have been placed at the margins. 

What Our Partners Say

“FFHC and BECOME have connected to promote a cause and share a common purpose and set of values while surrendering their organizational egos. This kind of partnering is not possible unless one has the amazing good fortune to work with a trusted partner like BECOME.”

-Dr. Kirk E. Harris, MPA, JD, PhD, Esq.

“BECOME has given our youth a voice.”

– Jocelyn Jones
 Executive Director
The Ark of St. Sabina

“BECOME evaluated the effectiveness of our 21st Century Community Learning Centers across Chicago. They were extremely professional and conducted a scientifically rigorous evaluation of our programs to help us discover our strengths, areas needing improvement as well as our impact on youth and families. They translated the data in a meaningful way to different constituents by ‘speaking their language’ with the organization overall, club staff members, teachers and principals, and community members. We trusted BECOME with this work and it allowed us to do what we do best … provide great programs for youth and their families.”
