In their words

Boulevard Board of Directors Salutes Our Staff

August 28th, 2019 was a special day at The Boulevard of Chicago, as our entire staff was honored for their deep and endearing commitment to the agency's vision, its mission, and (most importantly) its residents. During an elegant private luncheon, the Boulevard's Board of Directors paid tribute to our talented team, sincerely thanking them for their incredible loyalty and diligence. While most social service agencies routinely struggle with high turnover rates and stress levels, The Boulevard is blessed to be led by professionals who have been with us for many, many years. In fact, many of our leaders were part of the Boulevard when its doors first opened over 25 years ago, and are a vital part of our success. (Our colleagues spotlighted in the Gallery below have all served the Boulevard for over 20 years each.)
