Based in Burr Ridge, Illinois, Codilis & Associates represents servicers and lenders in real estate transactions, defaulted mortgage loans, and title curative work. The company also demonstrates its commitment to corporate social responsibility by supporting a number of organizations in the region, including the Jesse White Community Center and Fieldhouse in Chicago’s Near North neighborhood. Recently, Codilis & Associates helped fund a new technology resource center at the fieldhouse, which also offers a number of children’s after-school and summer programs, athletic facilities, and meeting space for local community groups.

Among its many after-school initiatives, the Jesse White Community Center and Fieldhouse works with the nonprofit Cabrini Connections to maintain a tutoring service that helps students between seventh and 12th grade pursue college and careers. By partnering with the spacious community center and using its facilities, Cabrini Connections will be able to grow its tutoring program. It currently assists around 75 students per year and hopes to increase that number to 250.

The program utilizes a one-on-one tutoring model so students receive individualized attention while developing long-term relationships with their mentors. According to Cabrini Connections, the program has helped more than 90 percent of its high school graduates attend college.
