In-kind donation
As the residents of Facing Forward move into their homes from the shelter system, they are in need of many every household items.
Some of the items include:
*Linens and bedding
*Toiletries
*Cookware
*Household cleaning supplies
*CTA fare cards

Adopt-a-Family
You can directly make a difference in the life of a homeless family. It costs only an estimated $12,000 a year to provide a family of four with a permanent home and the tools they need to rebuild their lives. This compares to more than $20,000 to place a family of three in an emergency shelter and more than $30,000 to incarcerate a single woman in an Illinois jail. If you are interested in sponsoring a family, at either the full or partial amount, please contact Bill at (773) 265.1207. You can also involve your faith community, social club, co-workers or neighbors!
