Each year, the Crown Family School Alumni Association recognizes distinguished alumni during Alumni Weekend. Chicago CRED received the Distinctive Innovation in Social Services Award from the University of Chicago Crown Family School of Social Work, Policy & Practice at the May 20 ceremony. The award recognizes social service agencies and programs that have demonstrated innovation in their approaches and practices. Arne Duncan, Paul Robinson, Billy Moore and CRED participants were there to accept the honor. CRED and its partners are working together to make our communities and our city safer.
