Community Needs Assessments

We survey thousands of Cook County residents about their biggest needs, challenges, and goals, releasing comprehensive reports every three years.

Our latest survey was released in 2021 and sheds light on the major impacts the COVID-19 pandemic had on Chicagoland.

Energy Assistance

Growing costs of living and stagnant wages leave less room for basic needs.

Energy Assistance offsets monthly utility bills allowing families to meet other basic needs – like childcare, food and medicine.

Family Support and Community Engagement

The suburbs are under-resourced for addressing poverty.

Our holistic approach offers individuals the range of support they need to change their lives and keep them stable.

Housing Services

Veterans are more likely than civilians to experience homelessness.

Our transitional housing provides a safe place to learn tools and skills to help achieve self-sufficiency and improve their quality of life.

Home Weatherization

Everyone deserves a safe and healthy home – warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

Our program makes homes more efficient, cost effective and safe.

Women, Infants & Children

Health and nutrition are an important base for development.

Our programs save lives and improve the health of nutritionally at-risk women, infants and children.
