We’re looking back at Team CCO 2012. Click the image to view our photo gallery from last years marathon and consider supporting Team CCO 2013. This year we have an even bigger group of dedicated volunteers willing to run 26.2 miles to help alleviate homelessness in Chicago.
May is Mental Health Awareness month and we are proud to partner and collaborate with so many great agencies in Chicago. Our shelter guests benefit from the care and of non-profits like, Thesholds, Beacon Therapeutic, Heartland Health Outreach, C4 and many others. Thank you!
Today is National Armed Forces Day. All the staff, residents and volunteers at CCO would like to remember our homeless shelter guests who have served our country in the armed forces. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development estimate that 62,619 veterans are homeless on any given night. Let’s serve our brave men and women especially in their time of need.
“When I got to the courthouse my lawyer informed me that the sheriff was coming and I was going to be arrested. They wanted to know if I was going to stay or run.
I decided to stay.”
The number of homeless fathers with children is increasing. It is our privilege to welcome dads with kids into CCO and help them achieve the success for themselves and their families. Take a few moments and read Lydell’s story here. Or take a look at the other success stories available in Our Story section on the right.
