WHAT WE DO.
At One Small Change we bring people together to amplify community voices and inspire transformation.
We desire to be a hub of systemic transformation and a catalyst for sustainable impact and growth, sourcing out innovative programs and resources, helping people tap into those programs and resources, and supporting the people making those programs and resources available.
How do we accomplish this mission? We are small and able to take on any interesting project at a moment's notice-and we like to stay responsive as we grow. We seek out disruptive innovation. That's meant taking risks and creating opportunities for supporting unique projects-creating the space for innovation to transform communities.
Everything we do revolves around bringing people together to amplify and catalyze systemic transformation upon a foundation of restorative justice. One Small Change helps organizations successfully transform to meet the needs of the communities that they serve.
Our intention is for organizations to thrive!

SO WHAT EXACTLY DO WE DO?:
We empower leaders and organizations with the skills and capacities to step into their vision and create sustainable organizations. Our work is created especially for creative, committed businesses and community organizations and their leaders. Some areas we support include governance, resource development, leadership and operational development.
For many people with great ideas for new and emerging organizations, the task and expense of starting up a legal non-profit organization is too daunting, and so their ideas never get off the ground. One Small Change provides legal non-profit status and guidance to fledgling organizations, so they can test out their ideas without jumping first through too many hoops. We also provide back office services, coaching and mentoring for each organization we sponsor. We currently sponsor two amazing Recovery Community Organizations, R2ISE Inc. and iHOPE Inc.

Dinner...with Friends, our Chicago Dinners Dialogue Project brings diverse groups of people together to foster community discussions about critical social issues such as race and racism, and to create civic engagement throughout our communities. The Chicago Dinners presents an opportunity, for many the only opportunity, to sit down at a table with others who do not look or live like us, and talk honestly about important and sometimes awkward subjects such as race.
One Small Change facilitates community based initiatives to connect with schools, businesses, and government organizations, and support faith leaders in responding more effectively to their communities.
