Today, SocialWorks hosted their second annual SocialWorks Summit in Chicago. Of course, Chance The Rapper is highly involved with SocialWorks and spoke to the attendants of the event via Periscope.
Chance stated, “We need a new space where people can get information on how they feel, on where to go and a network for us to interact and review our mental health spaces, and create a community of people helping people. So I’m proud to announce that I’m pledging one million dollars towards mental health services in Chicago.”
Chance explained his donation is with the intention to change the way mental health resources are being accessed by citizens of Chicago.
