The summer Transitional Shelter program provides short-term shelter for up to 12 clients that are on an employment or educational track or have an imminent housing plan in order to rapidly re-house individuals and families. There are also three beds dedicated to those who are newly homeless.
Housing Forward would like to thank all who came out to our Annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner Thursday, May 25th. It was truly a night to remember and we appreciate those that helped share the evening with us. The night's festivities included highlights from community in-kind contributions, volunteer testimonials, a call to action and honoring those who have retired and volunteering for 20+ years.
Our work is partly made possible by vital volunteers, who lend a helping hand. Housing Forward recognizes volunteers as "everyday heroes" who come from all walks of life, all ages, with something special to offer. This month we’d like to spotlight local Oak Park resident and youth volunteer, Sophie Essig.
The Auxiliary Board is an opportunity to participate in Housing Forward’s largest fundraising event of the year. You will be a part of a passionate team of professionals and volunteers working together to create an exciting silent auction for our guests.
The summer Transitional Shelter program is designed to foster self-sufficiency for clients who are on an employment or educational track with a combination of short-term shelter and supportive services in order to rapidly re-house individuals who are homeless in West suburban Cook County.
