This is what The Public Society of Humanity lives for!

Chicago's Got Talent is the first of many fundraising events organized to obtain a property to create a community center/transitional housing to give our youth an environment which nourishes their creativity, dreams and visions in efforts to decrease the suicide and homicide rate in Chicago's high crime neighborhoods.
