Gary Comer Youth Center, 7200 South Ingleside Avenue

SSA's has been working with the Comer Science and Education Foundation since 2004, a relationship that has augmented SSA's Community Development curriculum. Alumna Barbara Jackson was instrumental in developing the strategic plan for the Paul Revere School and the Gary Comer Youth Center by bringing a social work perspective to its management and service offerings and by creating a field education program. Samuel Deutsch Professor Emerita Dolores Norton also provided guidance as an Advisory Board member. The community now has social supports where none existed before.
