Last year Connections housed or stabilized 409 families while continuing to support 231 other families through our long-term programs.
Our work doesn’t end when a family gets housed. We continue to support our families for as long as they need assistance.
As summer ends and kids head back to school, it can be an exciting time for families. But for many of our neighbors, it can be a stressful time as they try to figure out how to balance paying monthly bills with the costs of back-to-school supplies and clothes. According to the Chicago Tribune, the average cost of sending one child back to school is $866.
Consider making a gift today to support families that need it.
