Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Education

State Senator Martin Sandoval recently welcomed Rebecca Darr, Women In Need Growing Stronger (WINGS) CEO, in front of the old site of the 8th district police station, at 3515 W. 63rd St.

The building has been vacant for nearly a decade, since the Chicago Police 8th District headquarters moved to a new building nearly across the street, at 3420 W. 63rd St.
The police station will be converted into the 1st domestic violence shelter in the City of Chicago in 10 years.

“Investments in the community will help families get back on their feet,” Sen. Sandoval said.

WINGS is a 501(c)(3) that helps homeless and abused women and children by offering integrated services that meet their needs for shelter, education, guidance and support.
