LINCOLN PARK COMMUNITY SHELTER
November 24, 2010
of the several homeless shelters across the city of Chicago I have served at, Lincoln Park Community Shelter has one of the greatest holistic approaches to identifying and addressing those issues that cause a homeless person to remin homeless. As a result, the staff and volunteers are able to strive to change those behaviors that cause recidivism and teach sustainable skills that will allow a homeless person to rejoin the community as a functioning member.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the testimonials of those who have graduated from the program and have found what they've learned at LPCS to aid them in their fight against returning to homelessness.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
pilot more extensive research on the recidivism and results from the graduates over the years.
Volunteer & I helped out with the One on One program that taught basic budgeting skills.
