Knowledge Hook-Up was founded by three women, all third generation residents of Southeast Chicago, who believed that you shouldn’t have to move to live in a better neighborhood. They took their IT knowledge and
set up a Community Technology Center to expand access to computers and offer free computer-skills training. Since 2006, Knowledge Hook-Up
has served over 1,200 participants.
Knowledge Hook-Up is now a familiar face in the community and we have created an atmosphere in which new relationships are formed between people who were not previously connected. Participants visit Knowledge Hook-Up for reasons other than using computers. They meet people,
make friends, and feel a sense of belonging. Eighty-nine percent of our participants visit on a regular basis and some consider it their home away from home. Knowledge Hook-Up is becoming an integral part of the social structure of our surrounding neighborhood often serving as a meeting place to learn more about the community.
Come to KHU for free computer instruction. KHU now offers GED, English as a Second
Language, and Citizenship classes.
