THE WATERING HOLE: OUR ITAV FOUNDING STORY

Talk about women making history! This month, It Takes A Village Family of Schools (ITAV) founders: Anita Andrews-Hutchinson, Nakisha Harris Hobbs, & Gwendolyn Harris are celebrating 18 years of providing Chicago children and families with high-quality, culturally responsive education and life empowering social services.

In a new video premiere in honor of  Women’s History Month, and to kick off their monthly donor campaign, the founders are releasing a short film sharing their origin story. Those familiar with ITAV may be surprised to learn in the video that the idea for building a culturally affirming space for African American children came to Nakisha when she was just twelve years old.
