Connections is THE agency in the northern suburbs leading the effort to deliver essential services to people who are homeless and unstably housed during the pandemic. We’re doing more than ever before and we are not slowing down. Your support will directly help sustain our COVID-response efforts.
How You Can Help
We are providing increased support to those most vulnerable to job/wage loss, food insecurity, and housing insecurity. We need your support to continue this critical work.
Your financial support will help us:
- Provide eviction prevention support
- Continue to temporarily shelter people in local hotels
- Provide 3 meals from local restaurants for hotel residents each day
- Locate housing for every individual in our care
- Pay staff overtime and hire additional staff
We have many volunteer opportunities at different locations and times of day. We need support with meals, drop-in, donation sorting, and more. If you are interested, please email our Volunteer Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
