Andrea Ortez, most recently leading SWOP’s Parent Mentor Program, is leaving to take on education work in the south suburbs. Andrea came to SWOP in 2008 as a Loyola student looking to make a difference in a community. She definitely accomplished that goal. Over her years at SWOP, she worked on Teen REACH, VOYCE, Reclaiming Southwest Chicago, community safety, and the Parent Mentor Program. Andrea brought life and fun, and occasional baked goods, to the SWOP office. She will be missed and we wish her well.
Jamillah Rashad will be managing the Parent Mentor Program this summer. Please contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
