It’s great to see Arturo in his brand new apartment! Congratulations!

It’s been an exciting week at CCO. Several of our single shelter guests have moved into permanent, stable housing. Five people found employment and two families moved into apartments this week from our family programs. We are grateful for all the success!

Your donations make these successful moves possible. Please donate today!

Thank you!

“I stopped by the Epworth Church gym late last night (Thursday, February 27) to meet these folks who run the overnight men’s shelter in Uptown. They are on the front line combating poverty and mental illness.”   – Sheila Simon, Illinois Lieutenant Governor

We want to thank Lieutenant Governor Sheila Simon for spending the evening at CCO’s Epworth Shelter for men. We appreciate your support. Thank you!
