Since 1980, the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless (CCH) has had a clear mission: “We organize and advocate to prevent and end homelessness, because we believe housing is a human right in a just society.”
La Casa Norte's mission is to serve youth and families confronting homelessness. They provide access to stable housing and deliver comprehensive services that act as a catalyst to transform lives and communities.
The Night Ministry compassionately provides housing, health care, outreach, spiritual care, and social services to adults and youth who struggle with homelessness, poverty, and loneliness. They accept individuals as they are and offer support as they seek to improve their lives.
At A Better Chicago, their mission is to build a more equitable city for our young people and future generations. They know that giving kids the support they need to thrive—a great education, a wage that can sustain a family, the ability to buy a home and live in a safe community—can lead to breaking the cycle of poverty. A Better Chicago is changing how Chicago fights poverty by investing in bold ideas that create opportunity for our youth.
Heartland Alliance works to advance human rights and champion human dignity by providing services and promoting solutions to achieve a more just global society. Society benefits when all people can participate, prosper, and reach their full potential. We will not give up until everyone is able to exit poverty, heal from trauma, and achieve stability.
