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.
Utility Bill Assistance
Growing costs of living and stagnant wages leave less room for basic needs.
These programs offset 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 costs continue to rise.
Our HUD-certified Housing Counsellors connect renters and homeowners with resources to find or stay in affordable housing.
