We want to say a huge thank you to our amazing donors! Your generous donations has allowed CCO to provide safe shelter, nutritious meals and valuable case work services to thousands of homeless families and individuals. Thank you!
Each year CCO staff and volunteers begin working before Thanksgiving planning and organizing Christmas parties and events for our shelter guests. Are you interested in donating new items for single women and men? New winter wear, toiletries and household items would be a real boost to our single shelter guests.
If you are interested in giving in this way contact Eve at email@example.com. Thank you!
Homelessness & Hunger Awareness Week has begun. Do you want to help alleviate hunger and homelessness in Chicago? If so, consider donating your time, talents or funds to help improve the lives of CCO’s shelter guests.
Each night CCO shelters over 300 women, men and families. Over 150 households take healthy foods home from our food pantry program each week.
Poverty issues like hunger and homelessness can seem large and overwhelming. It is easy to assume that our individual efforts won’t have an impact. While no agency or individual has all the answers, CCO and many other organizations are working hard to help alleviate homelessness and fill the hungry. Join us in our efforts to provide nutritious meals, safe shelter and valuable services to our homeless families and individuals. Consider donating today. Thank you!
“Addressing homelessness, providing shelter, accepting people, finding home.”
CCO donors, volunteers and staff have helped us shelter over 1,100 people and serve over 200,000 meals in 2012. For a little more than $1 a day we can provide 3 nutritious meals to one shelter guest. For a little less than $15 a day CCO can provide “wrap-around services” such as, safe shelter, meals and critical case management services to one shelter guest.
Be part of the good things that are happening at CCO!
