Chicago Coalition for the Homeless
May 19, 2011
I had the pleasure of working for Chicago Coalition for the Homeless while in graduate school. The passion of the staff for their work alongside of and on behalf of the homeless people of Chicago is inspiring. They focus on creative and policy solutions to the problems affecting individuals facing a barrier of multitudes to housing, employment and self sufficiency. As I begin my career in the nonprofit sector I am constantly looking to CCH as a model organization.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
seeing how individuals are empowered and given the tools to break the cycle of poverty while inspiring themselves and their children.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
give them the funds to grow! It would be great to see them make an even bigger impact here in Chicago.
