"The technology help we get in South Chicago, with the computers and cell phones, other people don't have in other places. I can bring in my laptop, flip phone or smart phone, and get whatever question I have answered on the spot." 


"I love living in South Chicago! I'm not just saying that because I won this prize today either. There's always something to do, and we enjoy ourselves every time we come together. We're all like family around here." 


"I've been involved in my community all my life. What I appreciate most about what we're doing in South Chicago are the options we have, now that we're older, that still keep us engaged plus help us bring in a little extra income."
