Biography of Mary Pascente

Mary P. Pascente (1919-1978) was a Near West Side resident and activist. In 1965, Mrs. Pascente joined the Chicago Committee of Urban Opportunities, since renamed the Model Cities Program. There she helped recent immigrants become accustomed to urban life in Chicago. During the development of the UIC campus, she helped displaced residents as a member of the Near West Side Community Committee. In 1976, Mary Pascente became co-ordinator for the police beat representative program of the Chicago Police Department. In that capacity, she helped develop relationships between residents and beat officers who patrolled their neighborhoods. This program became a model for the Chicago Police Department's community policing initiative.
