Company Overview

Human Resources Development Institute, Inc.

In 1973, Dr. C. Vincent Bakeman and Mrs. Doris M. Lomax gathered on the South Side of Chicago with a group of enthusiastic community advocates who all shared one common goal. This goal was to address the lack of mental health care services for African Americans: specifically, for African-American males who were stricken with mental illness, disability, and/or incarceration. A study conducted by the Illinois Department of Mental Health had found that the highest recidivism rate for the mentally ill in the state was among young African-American males living on the South Side of Chicago.
