Seeing the way the coalition for the homeless brings the community together in an effort to help others less fortunate is inspirational. I am proud to have had the opportunity to work with such a meaningful organization.

I have been working with Hannah Willage and the CCH Speakers Bureau for several years. As a staff person for the Civic Education Project at Northwestern University, I help coordinate service-learning, urban immersion programs ranging from one to three weeks long for students in grades 7 through 12; we have partnered with CCH to provide our students the opportunity to hear and become inspired by the personal stories and the many perspectives of the speakers involved in the program. Time and time again, our students have written about how the speakers deeply impacted their understanding of homelessness and humanity. The experience has proven to be very significant to their motivation to make a change in the world.

The Great!

I am a teacher at Tilden High School, and had the opportunity to work with Hannah Willage this February. She and her co-workers did an excellent job working with my students to help them earn service learning hours while they learned about homelessness. Hannah made many trips to our school, where seh presented a well -thought out Power Point presentation, supplied students with handouts of important information, and helped the students write letters for their aldermen. My students particularly enjoyed meeting with former homeless people who came with her as guest speakers. She accompanied us on our field trip to City Hall, even riding in our bus! She worked with a smaller group of students to help them have the chance to meet with the aldermen, as well. Her work, and that of her co-workers, was above and beyond what I expected. It was a pleasure working with her and I plan to do so again in the future.

The Great!
