Review for Housing Forward, Maywood, IL, USA
Housing Forward is recognized by community members and funders for its relentless innovation in working to solve homelessness in suburban Cook County (western suburbs of Chicago). It's continuum of services, from emergency services to prevent homelessness, to coordinating volunteer shelter support, to being the largest provider of supportive housing in the area, have earned this reputation. The organization showed this leadership with the recent opening of Sojourner House, a bridge housing facility offering both respite care for homeless leaving the hospital and needing a secure place to heal to families for which the shelter is not the appropriate place.
