S.A.F.E. Gospel Choir
In 1991, St. Agatha Family Empowerment (S.A.F.E.) was organized in Chicago by community residents to create a strong network of programs that promote community development. The projects provide educational enhancement, self-esteem enrichment and leadership skills development, while providing job training and part-time employment for youth and adults. S.A.F.E. provides at-risk children, youth and adults a safe haven and positive alternatives to drugs, gangs, teen pregnancy and violence.
The S.A.F.E. Gospel Choir’s purpose has always been to utilize music as a means of getting children and youth involved and engaged in arts and culture. And the choir’s mission: to engage the mind, educ-ate the body, and enlighten the spirit, has been acc-omplished by more than 500 participants in 17 years.
