Artimmeo has roots in West Garfield Park and Austin where he was born and raised. In 2017, he began working with Nonviolence Chicago as an Outreach Worker. He transitioned to case management and was selected as our first Reentry Specialist. Having been to prison himself, Artimmeo is committed to being a resource and guide to others making their way back into society. Because of his hard work and commitment to the program and participants, Artimmeo was promoted to Lead Reentry Specialist and is now serving as Reentry Supervisor for all our neighborhoods. He strives to make our reentry HOPE (Helping Our People Excel) program the go-to resource for the reentry population, curb recidivism, and establish Nonviolence Chicago as a pillar of peace in the community.
