You may have heard of a place called the Evanston Rebuilding Warehouse (ERW), a building material reuse warehouse and community organization in the West End of Evanston located at 2101 W. Dempster Street. In February of this year ERW initiated a workforce training program called the Evanston Rebuilding WORKFORCE.
