Our shelter residents travel far and wide to attend employment training, job interviews, court dates, counseling appointments and countless other essential engagements. By attending these appointments our residents are taking critical steps to stabilize their lives. This month the Chicago Transit Authority has greatly increased the cost of 1-Day, 3-Day and 7-Day Passes.

Are you interested in purchasing fare cards for our residents? If you would like to help our residents in this way send an email to bnicholls@ccolife.org. Thank you!
