We are absolutely thrilled to announce our exciting new community partnership with Onward House, an organization that is dedicated to making a lasting impact by improving lives and uplifting communities through a wide range of educational, economic, and support services in our Chicago community.

At Protrade Logistics, we firmly believe in the power of collaboration and investing in the betterment of our local community, which is why we are so excited to join forces with Onward House.

Onward House has an incredible history of responding to the ever-evolving needs of the community. Back in the early 20th Century, when the West Town community needed basic necessities like food, clothing, and shelter, Onward House stepped up to provide direct assistance. Today, at their current location in Belmont Cragin, they have identified adult education and affordable child care as two crucial pillars of community development. As a result, Onward House has become a leading provider of high-quality Early Childhood Education, catering to the needs of the community's youngest members. Additionally, they offer comprehensive Adult Education programs to ensure that individuals of all ages have access to valuable learning opportunities.

The programming focus of Onward House is truly remarkable. They offer education for children, youth, and adults, recognizing that learning is a lifelong journey. Furthermore, they prioritize workforce development by offering computer classes tailored specifically for adult learners and business owners, equipping them with the skills necessary to thrive in a rapidly changing digital landscape. Onward House goes above and beyond by connecting families with additional services, including their food pantry, which provides a variety of nutritious food to the community every Thursday. They also collaborate with CommunityHealth to operate a health clinic, providing telehealth and in-person primary care, prescription medicine, and lab work for uninsured adults. Their Illinois Welcoming Center for Immigrants and Refugees offers a range of services, including case management, crisis management, referrals to social services, and access to all their in-house programs and services. By providing this comprehensive support system, Onward House ensures that the community receives the holistic care it deserves.

At Protrade Logistics, we are incredibly proud to partner with Onward House because we wholeheartedly recognize the vital work they perform for our community. By providing essential educational opportunities, supporting workforce development, and connecting families with important resources, Onward House perfectly aligns with our vision of creating a stronger and more prosperous community. We firmly believe that by working together, we can make a significant impact and bring about positive change in the lives of individuals and families in need.

Our first project together is a Thanksgiving food drive. Learn more about how you can help provide a warm meal to a family in need.
