Our Mission

The Vega Family Foundation supports empowerment initiatives, individuals, and community development.


In 2019, The Vega Family Foundation (TVFF), started out as violence prevention and intervention program serving fewer than 100 youth in one community and now serves over 1000 youth annually in nine Chicago communities: Englewood, West Englewood, Gage Park, Auburn Gresham, Chatham, Brighton Park, Pilsen, Little Village and Archer Heights.


TVFF’s Purpose


The Vega Family Foundation (TVFF) was formed in 2019, out of a need for the neighborhoods in the City of Chicago, and surrounding communities. In low to moderate, disadvantaged communities, where the needs of the children, youth, and families would be met by a comprehensive set of initiatives using community inclusion and collaboration.

TVFF’s Core Values

Youth Development :  Engaging and developing youth leadership is necessary for establishing and sustaining a strong community.

Family Relationships : Strong families are the basic building block of a vital community both now and in the future.

Resident Leadership : Current residents, including youth and adults, should lead neighborhood development efforts.

Neighboring Networks :  Neighboring networks based on Christ’s command to “love thy neighbor” are essential for holistic community development and change.
