- When we help our most vulnerable youth we help make Chicago safer.
- Because our impact is immediate. When 2 of our Crushers were shot at 3:30 in the afternoon, a time when the Club should have been open, we were able to help and support them and their families immediately. This is only due to all of our generous donors big and small. Even a $25 donation goes directly to impacting our youth and their families. Over 30 Crushers youth are still receiving a paycheck every 2 weeks and we are in constant contact with them and their families to let them know they are not alone during this time. See our families and youth statements below.

“Crushers Club should be deemed an essential service they are a bridge to our youth” Kobe 19 “I want to thank you because you showed me how to be the man I want to be and never gave up on me, “
Our Youth Workers are proud to have a job!
Feeling good about yourself is so important, having a paycheck and a legal way to make money reliably helps motivate our youth to leave poor choices behind them and puts them on a positive path for a brighter and safer future!
Thank you for believing in me!
“I’m never going to forget all the Club has done for me, having a job and a safe place to go everyday where we record music, box and hang out has kept me out of trouble. I love Crushers Club they believed in me from the first day. I’m hoping we back open soon.”
