Lurie Children’s Hospital and Stone Community Development Corporation have begun work on the Austin HOPE Center, which will offer clinical care and social services to young people on Chicago’s West Side.

More than 100 people gathered at 5046 W. Chicago Ave. on June 10 to dig the first shovels of dirt before construction begins on a new social services building for Austin teens.
