Since you have not been to the Chicago Photography Center for two years, we would like to invite you back; talk with the executive director; talk with some of the volunteers; and gain a new perspective on the range of exciting classes offered by professional and experienced instructors.

Review for Chicago Coalition for the Homeless, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have had the pleasure of participation in there activism and awareness projects. They actually sponsor events that has multiple benefits including enriching homeless youth's lives. Way to go!

See their video. They sent some of these young people to Springfield to talk with appropriation members.

Review for The Night Ministry, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I personally have seen them help individuals turn their own lives around. Love their idea of being just present in peoples lives. No judgements. They help so many kinds of homeless people from children to seniors, from health to food and shelter. One of a kind! Everyone working there is someone special.

Board seems too interested in drinking wine and spending $ on food. Better places to spend money and their time.
