This past week Housing Forward Executive Director Lynda Schueler and Supportive Housing Director Patricia Stokes attended the Corporation for Supportive Housing’s Annual Summit in Los Angeles, June 5-7.
On June 3rd Maiden Street Irish Dance Academy held a special performance to benefit Housing Forward. The students of Maiden Street put on an amazing performance and helped raise over $2,100. The event was additionally supported by numerous parents who donated food and drinks, St. Vincent Ferrer Church who donated their space as well as Dark Matter Coffee and Two Brothers Artisan Brewing.
We had a wonderful evening honoring our many volunteers at our annual appreciation dinner. Our volunteers are truly the heart of our work to help end homelessness.
After months of waiting and patiently watching the re-construction progress at our headquarters in Maywood, we are ready to announce a grand re-opening date. Please join us on June 21st from 4pm - 6pm to tour and take part in this reentry celebration.
The 16th Annual Progressive Dinner was a delicious success once again this year! Thanks to each of you who attended and for filling the evening with laughter and friendship!
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.
Area organizations and community leaders donate their time and effort to organize fun activities that benefit Housing Forward throughout the year. Thanks to their creativity and support through events like this featuring hip hop music, ceramic bowls and online referrals.
