HOW WE ARE
We provide critical financial assistance to people experiencing an emergency that could lead to homelessness or other crises.
We convene key stakeholders and drive collaboration to lead Chicago’s citywide response to ending homelessness through our Continuum of Care.
We manage a citywide database to collect and analyze data on people experiencing, or at risk of, homelessness and the services they receive.
We offer our trainings, tools, information and research to our partners to help us build capacity to address homelessness more effectively.
