Our Roots

Creative Minds LIF is a nonprofit organization with roots from the West Side of Chicago. Our mission is to uplift our community and change the way we see ourselves via art and expression.

Creative Minds LIF Mentor Program aims to support the youth through adolescence, the transition between childhood to adulthood. We cultivate a strong sense of self worth and self esteem within our young community.

Dedicated members assist the youth by creating a safe space that allows for the shaping of one's own identity. All the while, encouraging each other to explore our gifts, talents, and passions. The organization provides resources for our young girls and women to help establish, nurture and execute their financial, scholastic and life goals.

By creating a sisterhood of like-minded individuals, we can become allies to one another. As the teens and young women share their ideas and thoughts with each other, we can see life experiences through different perspectives. Creative Minds LIF proudly maintains a judgement free space that serves as an outlet for our Creative Minds.



 At Creative Minds LIF, we are committed to our growing effort within the black community. For us, that has looked like providing those in need with essentials and meals. As well as volunteering to help plant and harvest at a community garden in Miami, FL.

Our organization held a march in West Chicago in an effort to bring awareness to the negative impact of lack-of self worth and love on Black communities.

With the help of the community we hope to continue to flourish within the realm of community outreach.


Art Galleries

Art has always been involved in shaping change in our world. Creativity and art is therapeutic and evokes emotions and conversations that words just can not say. From our mentor program to our peaceful rallies, art has been our common theme for change. Through our art gallery, we want artist to feel welcome and to help them find a platform and a home for their art. Through this initiative we will inspire local talent and educate them on how to use art to aid in mental health as well as how to be successful in this industry.  A portion of all proceeds aid keeping the dream alive and creating change.

To the mother that cooks the meal she doesn’t get to eat while it’s hot, who cleans the mess she didn’t make, tired but keeps a smile on her face and takes care of her family...WE SEE YOU, WE HEAR HER! We asked people to nominate a hard working mom, in one paragraph let us know why a mother of their choosing deserved this amazing Mommy make over, which included appointment with a professional nail tech, appointment with hairstylist, make up done, then a professional glam photo shoot and more.
