The 2013 CCO Annual Report is here! Inside the Annual Report you will find a letter from our Executive Director, program and service information, encouraging stories from successful CCO alumni, 2013 awards, volunteer, donor and financial information.
On behalf of the staff and shelter guests of CCO, we would like to thank everyone who give time and funds in a variety of ways in 2013. Thank you!
Great job, Robert! It’s good to see you with your new apartment keys. Congratulations!
CCO’s Shelter for Men provides bed space for 65 men each night. During the day men in the shelter program are offered intensive case management services, meals, on-site medical and mental health services, and a variety of services that meet the complex needs of each individual. Our goal is always stable, permanent housing. And it is our privilege to see our shelter guests move from homeless to housed! Join us in our efforts to provide safe, beneficial shelter. Donate Today!
We would like to thank the Pepsico company for their continued support of our programs here at CCO. In addition to sponsoring our monthly Men’s Barbershop Events, Pepsico also conducted a clothing drive which collected suits and business attire for our residents to wear for job interviews and apartment hunting.
Today we received a donation of 900 lbs. of Quaker Foods products from the Pepsico company. Good things are happening at CCO, and it’s the participation of our community partners that helps to make that happen! Thank you!
In 2013, over 170 people moved into permanent housing from one of CCO’s shelter programs or through street outreach. We never get tired of seeing our former shelter guests showing off their apartment keys!
Consider donating today! Donors and volunteers are a vital part of the good that goes on at CCO. Thank you!
Tzu Chi Foundation of Chicago generously donated a large number blankets to the CCO men’s overnight shelter. Each man sheltered in our men’s program got a new blanket with some left over for future use.
During these cold months, warmth is a wonderful gift. Thank you!

The calendar says that today is the first day of winter. It feels like it’s been here for while. Help us keep the cold out! CCO is always accepting donations of new or gently-used winter wear at 4628 N. Clifton Avenue in Chicago. Thanks!
CCO staff, donors and volunteers work long and hard to make the holidays special for our shelter guests. That includes families with children and single men and women. Help us make the holidays bright! Monetary donations go a long way in filling the gaps in gift and goods donated to CCO.
Please consider making a donation today. Thank you!
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!
