A Youth-Led Renewal Afoot In Belmont Cragin

Belmont Cragin is like a lot of Chicago.

It’s not a hot-spot. It’s not downtown. But organizations working there say there’s a Renaissance afoot in the Northwest Side neighborhood.

Morning Shift checks in with some of the groups working to make Belmont Cragin a great place to live and work.

GUESTS: Jaime Arteaga, program officer at LISC Chicago

James Rudyk, executive director of the Northwest Side Housing Center

Juyaly Rivera, youth leader of the Northwest Side Housing Center
