About the Provider

Description: The Ezzard Charles School has a long history of providing families in the community. The school was founded October 1970 by the late Rev. Clyde M. Allison, then pastor of the Emerald Avenue Presbyterian Church, located 6701 S. Emerald Ave., in the Englewood community. The founder selected to name the school after former heavyweight boxing champion Ezzard Charles, because he was a role model in the community and a member of the Emerald Avenue Church. The goal was to instill in the children the courage and confidence that made the man Ezzard Charles a champion. Ezzard Charles School is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors who are responsible for making policy. On August 17th, 1979, the Ezzard Charles School became incorporated as a non-for-profit organization in the State of Illinois. In 1987, the board of Directors purchased the property at 7944-46 S. Ashland Ave. in the Auburn Gresham community which allowed the center to expand its services. In 1994, the Board of Directors opened a Nursery program at 7949 S. Ashland Ave. to service infants and toddlers.
