New Outdoor Bright Space Opens at New Moms in Chicago

July 9, 2019

Welcome to our new outdoor Bright Space in Chicago! The Bright Space, located at New Moms, is our 3rd Bright Space with the agency since 2013, including 3 indoor play spaces and a playground at their original location. New Moms offers housing, job training, and family support for young moms experiencing poverty and homelessness.

While the playground itself was installed by professional contractors, Bright Horizons volunteers assisted with landscaping and creating the play areas.

Special thanks to Director of New Center Development Dawn Ellis-Ferzacca, Center Branding Specialist Arlie Papit, and Construction & Facilities Design Project Manager Jennifer Adams, along with Bright Horizons retiree Linda Oury, for leading the team of volunteers from throughout the Chicagoland area that made this Bright Space possible.
