Review for Good News Partners, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am just learning about Good News Partners and went for a site visit last month. I am amazed by the the genuine community spirit surrounding Good News. I met several residents, including a woman who was moving into her apartment with her five children from the shelter. She was so filled with joy to be moving her family into a space of their own made beautiful by Good News Builders. Then I met a young man - also a Good News Builder - who is rehabbing a barber shop. He was proud and filled with vision and promise for making his and others lives better.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Compassionate, engaged, intelligent.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Buy more properties to move people out of homelessness.
