About Us

Our commitment to violence prevention, inclusion, and dismantling racism is firm. These are critical issues that disproportionately affect marginalized communities, and addressing them is essential to creating a more just and equitable society.

Our support for youth in Chicago is grounded in compassion, strategies, and a commitment to equity and inclusion. By providing practical support and investing in the well-being and success of youth, Pink Lemons is working to make a positive impact in the lives of those who may be facing significant challenges.

Recognizing these challenges and working towards creating better opportunities and outcomes is crucial in ensuring that all young people have the chance to thrive and succeed. Together, we can create a more just society where every child has the opportunity.

Our mission is to make life a little sweeter for underserved and under-resourced youth between the ages of 18 to 24, by impacting awareness, empowerment, and education.

Our Vision

A world where EVERY child thrives.
