Chicago Coalition for the Homeless
April 1, 2011
The CCH is a special program because it is an agency that unbuttons its sleeves, gets its hands dirty, and does whatever it takes to effect the perniciousness of homelessness. CCH is a program that also directly involves the voices and experiences of those affected by homelessness and the lack of affordable housing to actually DO something to effect change. CCH organizes and does advocacy work in rich and poor communities and uses its resources effectively.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Impacting community discussions around affordable housing, community investment, etc.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
contribute towards its finding or building a permanent home for its operations.
Professional with expertise in this field & I have helped supervise students who volunteer at CCH.
