ABOUT T.A.K.E

Emerson-Park

Small Beginnings.
Big Impact.

What began as a modest effort to address missing manhole covers and broken streetlights in the Emerson Park neighborhood of East St. Louis, Illinois, has become one of the largest and most proactive community-based organizations in the Metro East area.

OUR MISSION

The mission of the Teens Against Killing Everywhere is to assist the residents of the Emerson Park neighborhood and its surrounding communities in achieving their full human potential by offering high quality programs in three areas:

(1) Housing and Economic Development
(2) Education and Job Training
​​(3) Community Advocacy 

Founded in 1985

by Ceola Davis
