New IMPACT Chicago Office Location: 4057 N. Damen Chicago

In the 90s, the first central office for IMPACT Chicago was in the Berger Park Cultural Center on Sheridan Road. When the mission of the Cultural Center became more focused on art and music, we moved to make room for other organizations more appropriate for the space. With the help of IMPACT graduate Shelley Bannister , we were able to sublet an office in Lincoln Square from naprapath Karen Bruneel . We sublet from Karen for almost 10 years and then from Mary Ellen Boyte for a couple of years. When Mary Ellen’s landlord no longer wanted us to sublet her space, we were fortunate to be welcomed by Lin Shook Schalek, the owner of Lin Shook Studio at 4057 N. Damen in Chicago.

Here are some of the things we like about our new office space:
  • The office is in the same location as a classroom space we will be using in  2015.
  • We can store our mats on site. 
  • There is lots of free and metered parking in the area. 
  • We are near the Irving Park and Damen bus stops. 
  • We are within walking distance of the Irving Park-Brown Line stop. 
  • We are in a lively neighborhood with restaurants, cafes, small shops, and a CVS.
Mary Ellen will continue to collect our mail as long as we need her to do so. Thank you, Mary Ellen! Thank you also to Tara Brinkman, IMPACT Chicago Registration and Workshop Coordinator, for coordinating our office move!
