Pride month is not just a celebration- it’s also about advocacy, awareness, and affirmation. According to the National Center for Transgender Equality, 1 in 5 transgender individuals have experienced homelessness at some point in their lives. Family rejection, discrimination, and violence are the main reasons that many LGBTQ individuals experience homelessness. At LPCS we work to empower our Guests and strive to provide a safe and inclusive space for EVERYONE. #pridemonth #homelessnessawareness #transrightsarehumanrights

Calling all VOLUNTEERS! We are thrilled to announce that beginning June 1, we can safely welcome all volunteers back onsite, including our meal groups! This decision was made in accordance with the current city guidelines. We will be starting with onsite meal volunteers at our Sedgwick location and plan to open onsite meal volunteering at Fullerton in mid-June.

If you plan to volunteer onsite, please note that masks will be required when inside our buildings. Meal groups are limited to 6 people and volunteers will not be permitted to dine with Guests at this time. As we continue to monitor the city’s progress, we will keep you updated on any protocol changes!

LPCS is so pleased and excited to introduce you to Cheryl Hamilton-Hill, our new Chief Executive Officer. Cheryl is an exceptional leader with a proven track record of developing strategy, engaging community, and growing mission-driven organizations like LPCS. She most recently served as the CEO at Covenant House IL where she led the startup efforts and quickly grew it into one of the largest shelters serving youth in the region, helping more than 800 young people, with more than 30,000 services annually. Prior to her work in Chicago, Cheryl served as a consultant and advocacy-lobbyist in Washington DC and before that, served in senior leadership positions at the United Way and American Red Cross. It goes without saying that we are extremely lucky to have Cheryl join the LPCS team.

We want to express our deepest gratitude to Andy Pires, who has served as Interim Executive Director of LPCS for the last 12 months. Andy has been an incredibly dedicated leader for our organization, carrying us through a pandemic while still managing to grow our programs and impact. Prior to serving as our Interim ED, Andy was a volunteer of more than 10 years and served on our board. He exemplifies the spirit of the LPCS community to the fullest extent.

Please join us on Friday at 7pm to welcome Cheryl and thank Andy during our virtual Metamorphosis Gala! https://donate.onecause.com/meta2021 #newbeginningslpcs
