A CHANCE FOR CHANGE

We have all run into someone down on their luck. We’ve even passed on a couple of bucks, a sandwich, or a bottle of water. The perception that these human beings are drug addicts and alcoholics, and are scamming us for their next fix or drink is wrong. Some have lost it all, including hope and faith. Others have lost faith and don’t know where to turn to get help.

If you are the type of person that will hand someone your change or a meal, why not help them with the resources that could potentially brighten their hopeless life.

Yes, some people are scammers. But know this; kindness towards other people, especially those we don’t know, speaks to our humanity, and we can all be proud of that.

“Our actions both define and reveal our character.”

CHILDREN

Every year 2.5 million children experience homelessness. That’s almost the entire population of Chicago.

VETERANS

There are nearly 50,000 homeless veterans in the country, and more than half of them (54 percent) have a mental and/or physical disability.

ABUSE

Many people are survivors of domestic violence are homeless because they have left an abusive partner.

HANDOUT REQUEST

Based on the zip code and your selections on the form, we will research and create a ready-to-print handout of local resources. No personal information is required, but we encourage a personal note or message, maybe your favorite quote.

When approaching any strangers in public one should always take precautions and maintain a safety first attitude.
