Review for Lincoln Park Community Shelter, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

LPCS is absolutely amazing. They do such good work for so many people, all with private donations and no government money. My husband and I have been volunteers and donors for over ten years. Sitting down with a guest over a cup of coffee and talking, you realize they are people, just like any other people. They have dreams and goals and have hit a bump in their journey.

Do nothing - they are great!

Role:  Volunteer & Stayed overnight with the shelter guests over 100 times and served breakfast in the morning.
