Help this Southwest Side Teen Succeed in College

Pearl Sarmiento is a high-achieving student at Hancock High School.  She will attend Columbia College Chicago this to be a music teacher.

To help her succeed in college, Pearl applied for support through a new initiative from Pilsen's Resurrection Project.  La Casa will provide affordable housing to low-income college students so they have a place to study and experience college life affordably.
