Ten ways we're giving back

This year, Chuhak & Tecson’s Women Helping Women program (WHW) is celebrating its 10th anniversary by giving back to the Chicagoland community through an effort titled, 10 Ways to Give Back.

In tribute to our clients, friends and nearly 20 community service partners since 2009, we have launched a year-long service initiative benefitting 10 different organizations in need. Check back throughout the year for updates to our service project list!
