Review for Chicago Coalition for the Homeless, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been a big supporter of the Coalition since the late 1990's when I was working in direct service with homeless youth. I currently serve on the board, and am amazed at the way they consistently and effectively advocate for the homeless population in Chicago and in Illinois. They have a remarkable policy expertise, and they use it to advance huge changes that impact thousands of people. I'm proud to be a small part of the work that happens at the Coalition.

Review for Chicago Coalition for the Homeless, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

For years CCH has served as an advocate for the homeless population in Illinois. As leaders in the homeless services field, they have helped win battles (legislative, personal, and otherwise) for many families and individuals impacted by homelessness. For me, CCH served as my "true north" when I started working on youth homelessness in the late 90's. They brought along this neophyte in the field to help ensure I had the information and capacity I needed to serve the homeless youth in my agency and in the surrounding communities. I love that they are not beholden to anyone but the communities they serve. They do amazing work. Amazing.
