This year, with your support, 100 participants moved into their new homes for the holidays. In total, we have served nearly 2,000 people since March through eviction prevention, hotel and shelter operations, and housing programs.
Join us in celebrating the season of giving as we continue to end homelessness in our community, one person at a time.

Donna is Home for the Holidays!
Donna began coming to drop-in services for support and later she began volunteering at our Dewey Avenue location. She quickly became an important number of our Connections community.
Her journey to housing hasn't been easy. Feeling safest and most comfortable sleeping in her car, she only utilized emergency shelters on the coldest nights. Twice Donna was matched with housing that ultimately fell through. She remained optimistic and demonstrated great resilience. The roadblocks and the twists and turns have led her to the right place. Donna is excited to celebrate her first holiday season in her new home in the South Suburbs.
