ALSO works in partnership with people living in risk of violence to promote safer streets and homes.
ALSO's Vision: Safe Homes, Safe Streets
What We Do
Established in 1998, the Alliance of Local Service Organizations (ALSO) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Chicago, Illinois. We recognize that violence in homes and streets can be connected, and we work to end both. Our mission is to work in partnership with people living in risk of violence to promote safer streets and homes. Our vision is: Safe Homes, Safe Streets. Locally, ALSO works directly with residents of predominately Puerto Rican and African-American neighborhoods in Chicago's northwest side through its Safe Streets outreach intervention program, re-entry and youth employment services. In addition, through training, consultation and resource-sharing, ALSO works with governmental and nongovernmental agencies throughout the 56 U.S. States and Territories to build their capacity to address domestic and dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking.
