Southwest Chicago Homeless Services

Want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money to benefit Southwest Chicago Homeless Services, and any donation will help make an impact.

SCHS operates in the Chicago Lawn Community, and serves over 1500 homeless or housing insecure community members on the south side of the city each year. The program provides counseling, housing placement, health services, toiletries, clothing, and meals for individuals in need.

If you plan to make a contribution to SCHS later this year, NOW would be a much more effective time.

If this is the first time you have heard of us, we are grateful for your consideration and support!

SCHS is in need of significant funding ($11,000) to remove a buried heating fuel tank that has been determined in a recent environmental survey to be a hazard in need of immediate remediation.

To learn more about SCHS and its mission, to donate via the website, or to volunteer, please see: http://homelessservices.org/

Also, if you’d like to talk to me about why I support SCHS and feel that this is a vital part of the Chicago community, please reach out! I’d love to talk with you

    Everyone please help us show some love to St. Richard Catholic School (PreK - 8th) and Parish for donating bags to the Collective and our partner Southwest Chicago Homeless Services for people experiencing homelessness through their "Blessing Bag Project." St. Richard School collected thousands of items and created more than 180 Blessing Bags to give to our unhoused neighbors in Chicago this Lent. Each bag contains water, snacks, socks, gloves, wipes, band-aids and a few other essentials, as well as a message of hope and love from St. Richard School and Parish. It's always special to see students engage in this work and help our unhoused neighbors. We are incredibly grateful for this huge donation!
    On https://www.LittleNewsEars.com tomorrow there is a news for kids item about Robert Magiet, a café owner in Chicago giving tamales to the homeless. The video is also here...at the 6:25 mark or so: https://youtu.be/SwMWbqC6Nuw
    We are feeding this people this weekend! We are looking for volunteers to safely prep veggies, roll burritos, help us distribute, and/or donate food! The filling will be prepared in Bridgeport but burritos will be distributed all over the city. This is based on a nonprofit in Oregon that we are trying to start here! Check us out, help if you can, and spread the word: https://www.facebook.com/events/1042505596261005
    Please be our eyes. So many of our missing who suffer mental health issues are living homeless. We need your help. Please go to our page and look at our fliers. Please help us find our family members
    Just came across this FB post from All Chicago. Reminder to service providers - State Homeless Prevention funding is available! Spread the word! Financial assistance of up to $1500 is available to Chicago residents who are currently homeless or who are in imminent danger of homelessness, eviction, or foreclosure. Households must be able to document a temporary economic crisis beyond its control. Potential clients can call 3-1-1 and ask for "short-term help" to be referred for assistance. All assistance goes through four of All Chicago's partner agencies: AIDS Foundation of Chicago, Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Chicago, Heartland Alliance - Heartland Human Care Services, and La Casa Norte
