Our Mission

We see 1,000 homeless men and women with addiction recovered and living as positive members of society. 

Meeting the needs of the community for 28 years


In 2015 we provided supportive housing to nearly forty homeless individuals through our Page One supportive housing programs. We have expanded our transitional housing program and implemented permanent and rapide rehousing initiatives. We assisted a number of clients in finding employment and permanent housing . Through our homelessness prevention program we were able to serve 13,000 meals. An additional 3,000 food parcels were distributed to households through our food pantry. An additional thirty clients received over 25,000 in rental, mortgage or utility assistance through our prevention services. We are on tap to doubling those numbers in 2016.

Our strategy includes the development of four row houses, the opening of our transitional family shelter, and the future construction of our Library Multi-Purpose Facility. 

In 2016 we now have the capacity to become one of the leading south suburban agencies to address homelessness. So, we solicit your support and encouragement as we play our part in the eradication of homelessness in the state of Illinois.

Hunger isn't seasonal, which is why our year-round food drive gets so much attention. Devote an afternoon to stocking our pantry and see first-hand the community members we help daily.
