CCO would like to say a special thank you to the Emergency Fund, who hosted the 2013 Breakfast with the Mayor. At this years event, Jeremy Nicholls, was awarded Fund Manager of the Year! We are proud of Jeremy and grateful to the Emergency Fund for this exciting recognition. Thank you!
The mission of the Emergency Fund is to provide assistance to low income Chicago area individuals through a crisis or transition. Volunteer Fund Managers are located throughout the city and do work on the “front lines” with families and individuals who are in crisis.
Since January 2011, we have assisted 649 homeless people get their birth certificates. A big thank-you also to the Emergency Fund; who have provided the finances to make all this happen.
The first way we helped the man who’s image is featured in this blog-post was to assist him in getting his birth certificate; and now we can say that after many years of homelessness, he has successfully moved into his own apartment!
The Emergency Fund provides immediate financial assistance to help low income Chicago area individuals and families through a crisis or transition. Thanks, Emergency Fund!
