Maureen Hallagan Named Goldin Institute Fellow
It was announced this week that Marillac St. Vincent’s Chief Operating Officer, Maureen Hallagan, has been named one of the Goldin Institute’s 2021 Chicago Peace Fellows.
Founded in 2019 in collaboration with the Partnership for Safe and Peaceful Communities, the Chicago Peace Fellows program is the only leadership development program that is built by and for grassroots community leaders on the South and West sides of Chicago.
Peace Fellows participate in GATHER, an online asset-based community engagement course, as well as in-person training, collaborative action projects, and networking experiences with civic leaders, academic researchers, and policy makers. The Chicago Peace Fellows reduce violence by building relationships, engaging youth, collaborative peace building projects over the summer, and by creating new networks among residents, families, schools, and nonprofit organizations.
Maureen has been a leader at MSV for over 35 years. This newest honor is a testament to her dedication to peace on Chicago’s west side and her passion for the Mission of MSV. In 2019, Maureen was also appointed to the IDHS’s Child Care Advisory Council where she continues to advise the Department on child specific issues.
