We are quickly approaching the December 31 tax deadline for donations. We ask that you continue your commitment to alleviating homelessness in Chicago. We are privileged to work with a diverse range of people. From newborns to senior citizens, individuals to large families, we are dedicated to walking alongside everyone who comes to us in need. Join us in this critical work by making a donation today. Thank you!
We can’t forget about our single shelter residents at this time of year! It can be especially challenging to be on your own for the holidays. That’s why CCO, along with our generous volunteers and donors, have had several great events for the residents of our Naomi House and Epworth shelter programs. We want to thank Elkgrove Calvary Chapel for serving delicious holiday treats while passing out new backpacks, socks and winter wear for our single shelter residents! Thank you!
Did you know? On average, 35% of CCO’s childhood shelter population is under 5 years old. Our longest-running shelter program, Hannah House, has worked with hundreds of families with small children to move from homelessness to stable housing.
Did you know? Over 100 children are sheltered at Cornerstone Community Outreach with their families. The joy and energy the children have is palpable and it is our privilege to work with families toward self-sufficiency and permanent housing.
