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

Rating: 5 stars  

The Shelter is one of the jewels in the Lincoln Park neighborhood. The community embraced the organization early on and has never let go. There are literally people who volunteered and donated money from the very beginning that are still serving meals, donating money, running events and providing services. Guests get way more than a meal and a warm bed. The LPCS changes lives...helping those less fortunate with a helping hand to get on their feet and stay there. I truly believe the funds I give to LPCS are some of the wisest dollars I spend.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Watching guests grow into confident productive members of society.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Try to find a way to get a younger donor base to embrace the shelter.
