Help us support our houseless neighbors through dangerous cold weather
Published on January 16, 2024 by Alyssa

Hey everyone!

Over the past week, we've been doing outreach to folks living in tents to make sure they are warm and safe through last week's storm and this week's cold snap, while temperatures have gone down to -10 F with reported windchill feeling like -27 F.

We have put several people into hotel rooms until the weather begins to warm up again.

We are also working on getting folks the food and supplies they request such as handwarmers, portable heaters, cold weather sleeping bags, thermal layers, boots, tent tarps, CTA passes, and more. If you would like to support this work, please donate and share with friends!

If you know someone who doesn't have a place to stay, reach out to us at [email protected] or (312) 324-4378.

We hope you're all able to stay warm and safe this week!

Thank you!
