Volunteers Needed for 2019 Point-in-Time Homeless Count on January 30th: Let's make everyone count.

Thursday, December 13th, 2018

The Alliance to End Homelessness in Suburban Cook County is the coordinator of a federally mandated homeless count that occurs every other year. During this single night, over one hundred volunteers canvass the streets in groups of three or four and attempt to count every person living outside in suburban Cook.

Engaging youth in volunteering and advocacy.

Our youth volunteer engagement is on the rise and Jonny Hugh from Oak Park is one great example.  As part of his 8th grade service and learning project at the Oak Park Children’s School, Jonny decided to tackle the issue of homelessness. Jonny prepared over 100 personal care packages and distributed many of these during  St. Mary of Celle Parish's shelter night.

Thank you to our gift donors!

Thank you to all of those who helped to support the Holiday Gift Drive program which paired generous gift donors to individuals and families in our Supportive Housing program and families in our PADS Shelter. This year we were able to support 109 individual clients who requested gifts for themselves and their immediate family members. Thank you to the 55 donors who were able to make this possible by providing them with a holiday they could otherwise not afford.
