OUR HISTORY

 

History of (TSG) Support Group (TSG) is a nonprofit organization servicing Chicago-Land under-served youth from diverse backgrounds and communities since 1989. TSG provides youth with invaluable experiences that will assist them in reaching their full potential, while arming them with tools and skills needed to matriculate post-secondary education, the workforce and beyond.  The Support Group is the brain-child of the Executive Director, Bennie Henry in collaboration with NBA legend Tim Hardaway. This important work began in 1989 when Mr. Henry worked with many Chicago-land NBA potential stars equipping them with the tools not only to succeed on the court but to succeed in life. With his passion, drive, and his commitment to the community, Mr. Henry engaged players such as Juwan Howard, Michael Finley, Antoine Walker, and many others. The Support Group has touched thousands of lives throughout its 26 years of service in the community.
