VILLAGE TREASURE HOUSE
November 26, 2012

The Village Treasure House is a terrific not-for-profit organization. Through the generosity of our customers, consignors, donors, and dedicated volunteers, we have been able to give substantial financial gifts to many other not-for-profits supporting women and children in crisis. It is extremely rewarding to work for this organization as a volunteer and board member. It is amazing to me to see how quickly we've grown, especially over the past 5 years since I began as a volunteer. Our consignors and donors continue to provide beautiful merchandise which changes daily, and our sales continue to increase, thanks to our many customers. All the real life stories of how our grants to other organizations impact the lives of women and children in crisis make the hard work more than worth it.

FAMILY PROMISE CHICAGO NORTH SHORE
November 26, 2012

Our main focus is to help families who have lost their housing get back into permanent and sustainable housing and employment as quickly as possible.  With the help of generous donors, volunteers, and community partners, we provide our families with the services and support they need to transition out of homelessness and back into a position of self-sufficiency. Our solution is unique in that we keep families together, providing a safe environment and emergency transitional shelter using the existing facilities of local congregations and organizations. We offer our families a daytime location which provides them with a mailing address, job search resources, and a place to have their children picked up for school. Importantly, the children are able to remain in their own schools during this time of transition. We provide supportive services tailored to each family to address the root causes of their homelessness. Through workshops, training, and counseling, each family develops a stabilization plan to prepare them for independence. FPCNS is a terrific organization and I am proud to be a member of the board.
