“No to racism, yes to humanitarian”
― Laith Alhaj SJ ZAM’s Hope is the vision and creation of Zehra Quadri, a single mother who discovered first-hand the lack of services available to immigrant women in Chicago, especially on the north side.

Giving is not just about making a donation. It is about making a difference. Throughout #GivingTuesday today, we’re sharing the many different ways you can support ZAMs Hope:

ZAM's Hope would like to take this opportunity to personally "Thank You" for your support and hard work to make our 18th Annual Holiday Dinner for Homeless Community and 20th Annual Turkey Distribution, Feed the Hungry program a success. It would be impossible for us to achieve our goal without you!

We met our target to feed low income individuals, seniors, and homeless community. Also, we distributed blankets and comforters as well.

Serving community after 20 years, this is our first year that we have experienced during our Homeless Holiday Dinner Distribution. We observed several tents and mattresses on the street, and we felt intense sadness & sorrow. Therefore, we need your support to continue serving one meal to those who are in need badly.

The extent of someone's past trouble can be impossible to know.
The effects of homeless can be devastating.

Unfortunately, our last stop we made with only 200 dinner packages and about 600 people who was looking to get Holiday Dinner which we were unable to provide. Now we are planning to raise $6 lunch (sandwiches) per person for 400 disabled individuals, seniors, and youth in West Side of Chicago. Please watch our upcoming fundraising activity to continue holiday cheers.

I am hoping that we will continue working together in the future with the same dedication, enthusiasm, and motivation. May God reward us all for our sincere mission of helping low income individuals & families and those who need support during these challenging times.

Thank you once again for your kindness, time and effort that you all put into making Thanksgiving during Pandemic successful. Mission accomplished!

With best wishes and our sincere gratitude.

Hello Facebook Friends,
I hope & pray that you all are doing well especially during this Pandemic.

We were busy working hard as usual to benefit the Community 24 hours/7 days a week during COVID-19. We accomplished a lot during this pandemic.

We had many depressing situations during these hard times. I cannot wait to tell you that one of our clients who came 10 years ago when her husband passed away and she was trying to figure out how to manage her life. Thank God we opened our arms and put her family in our grocery distribution program, her kids in our youth program and guided her for employment. Their life was not comfortable but was ok until March 14th, 2020.

One of her children had attempted to commit su***de due to financial situation. They needed $930 a month rent to prevent from getting evicted. They were behind 3 months in rent. With a heavy heart we talked one of her children out of a depressing situation and we raised extra funds for her rent and basic needs. We are happy to save three lives because of generous donors like you!

“Be charitable- donate money, time and make someone else’s life better.”

Stay Blessed & Safe!

Today is #CensusDay!

Why the Census Matters?

Information from the census shapes our communities and influences our city voice in Congress. The census tells us who we are as a nation and what we need.

The data are used to determine what resources our communities need. Funds are provided to state and local governments who then use that money to fund programs and infrastructure like healthcare, housing, education, and transportation.

On November 28th, 2018 ZAM’s Hope had another successful WRP Community Watch Initiative Walk. Business and community members were happy to observe yellow-jacket participants walking to spread awareness about community unity and safety. Sergeant Sisk and Zehra Quadri provided valuable safety tips to Devon Merchants and community members.

Let’s work together to keep our neighborhood safe!

We are blessed to share!
