Chicago Coalition for the Homeless
December 23, 2009
I worked with CCH as a summer intern with Development. I assisted in the development of CCH's first casino night fundraiser, Decks and the City and the Annual Golf Outing. I also witnessed and participated in city campaigns dealing with state tax, education, and development policies that aided the homeless. Many people working at CCH experienced homelessness firsthand in their lives so they were able to provide their insights in order to help.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
varied. People from different ages, genders, ethnicities, and socio-economic backgrounds worked and volunteered with this organization. People were generally sensitive and open to other people's opinions but also willing to challenge when necessary.
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
About every six months
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Former volunteer & I worked with Development and also shadowed workers and volunteers from other departments who worked in fundraising, city-wide campaigns, and local/state politics.
