Thank you for helping provide much needed funding to benefit our neighbors in need of emergency resources, shelter, nutrition, clothing & furniture, health services, mental health services, as well as free events & education, senior advocacy & youth outreach. We have helped hundreds of members of our community since establishing our 501c3 this past year and plan to keep up that momentum with your help!

We believe everyone experiences hardship in their lifetime and so we spread a message of "No Shame" helping individuals and families grow from 'Merely Surviving' to 'Joyfully Thriving'. The need for emergency resources has grown substantially, with the cost of inflation and post-covid recession, driving many to go hungry or unable to afford housing. Combine this with an influx of refugees and asylum seekers to the Chicagoland area and many service providers are overwhlemed, unable to meet the demand. Please help us provide basic necessities to our neighbors in need while bringing joy back into our community!
