Emerging Leader Lives Life of Service

Elizabeth Galik, Executive Director of River City Development Center (R CITY) in Chicago, Ill., and a 2017 We Raise Foundation Emerging Leader Grant recipient, calls her life “pretty ordinary,” despite the fact that she lives in a neighborhood that many avoid.

R CITY operates in Chicago’s West Humboldt Park (WHP) neighborhood, an area that ranks in the top 1% of Chicago police beats for prostitution, drug arrests, violent incidents, and homicide. It’s also a neighborhood where families face a poverty rate of 98.8%. Galik and her family are embedded in the neighborhood, living with and walking along side residents and serving “the least of these” with love and compassion.
