Twin D. Green: 5th District Winner, 2012 Peggy A. Montes Unsung Heroine of Cook County Award

Twin D. Green is an ardent advocate for civil and social justice on behalf of children and families. Twin witnessed first-hand the struggles of her teenage son. That personal experience led her to commit herself to create The Link & Option Center, Inc.

Along with being the Founder,  Twin is also the CEO of TLOC, a multi-faceted, nonprofit, community-based human services organization that has provided educational support services, mentoring and intervention/delinquency prevention services to youth and families in South Suburban Cook County. Created in 1995, the continuing mission of TLOC is to empower youth and families and to provide them with quality prevention and intervention services that will create a bridge across systems of care-to maximize and publicize opportunities offered through area schools within the communities.
