How does your mother inspire you?

Camille Montgomery began working at CHIL (Covenant House Illinois) only nine months ago, but she had already made an outsized impact with her coworkers and, most importantly, the youth she serves.

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, Camille is very conscious of the role her own mother has played in her successes to date. “I thank my Mom for being my biggest motivator,” she says. “She always tells me to do better and go further than her, and I’m doing my best to make her proud in every area of my life – I love you Mom!”

Show Your Love For Moms & Support CHIL at the Same Time! Beautiful floral card with pop-up flower basket - the perfect way to say thank you to the special mother in your life!

For a donation of $50 or more, CHIL will mail a special Lovepop flower basket card (while supplies last) to anyone you choose. What's more, your donation amount will be matched through a generous contribution from CHIL board member Greg Pusinelli and his wife Marie as part of our 10,000 Nights Challenge. (The CHIL residential program recently passed the milestone of providing 10,000 nights of shelter!)

Covenant House Statement - April 20, 2021

While justice for the Floyd family cannot heal such deep wounds, we hope this verdict propels much needed change. Holding Derek Chauvin accountable for the murder of George Floyd is a necessary, incremental step towards justice and equity.

But this must not -- cannot -- slow down the movement for justice. This past week, we woke up to the news of the senseless death of an unarmed black man, 20-year-old Daunte Wright, and the shocking video released of the shooting of 13-year-old Adam Toledo. Each time a horrific injustice occurs, it only serves to swell the trauma and pain experienced by so many Black Americans every single day.

At Covenant House, we owe our young people more than shelter, housing, food and job training. We owe BIPOC youth the witness of an anti-racist movement that names the toxins in our society and champions justice and peace. We owe them our voices in support of efforts to dismantle racist institutions and practices, from the disproportionate representation of Black children in foster care, to state level voter suppression efforts, to redlined housing markets, all of which hurt or destroy Black families and perpetuate housing instability and homelessness.

From Homelessness to Hope

Every night in the city of Chicago, as many as 3,000 youth grapple with homelessness. Facing difficulties such as intergenerational poverty, neglect, exploitation, and/or mental health issues, what these youth are ultimately looking for is a place to call home.

Utilizing a holistic approach that employs guidance, mentorship, and care, Covenant House Illinois accepts each and every youth who walks through our doors with unconditional love and absolute respect.

If you find yourself needing to stay with us, we pledge to provide you with shelter + safety, trust + community, and a better tomorrow.

Home is a promised sanctuary. Home is a found family. And home is a brighter future. Let us help put you on the path home.

Social service agency that makes a real difference in people's lives and doesn't just offer fluff.
This place is not what it appears to be. In I'm sure a lot of legal actions can be taken against this facility that is supposed to help young adults.

Thanks for hosting the Grainger team last week on our National Day of Service. We had a great team interacting with everyone there and organizing stock rooms is exactly in our wheel house!
This is fantastic Chris!
