BECOME developed our 5-year Strategic Plan (2022-2027) with the intention to refine and expand our movement building and community transformation work in the community. We share our vision towards a social transformation offering actualization, liberation and abundance for the communities we serve. At our core, we believe that authentic relationship building with impactful coalitions, organizations, institutions and community members will be the key to unlock change.

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.”

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.”
