Whether you are able to give $5.00 or $5,000.00, your donation is critical to giving so many homeless and at-risk Chicagoans a second chance.

Together, we are helping thousands of homeless youth and families. The need is great, and most of our programs have a long waiting list; we could not do this work without your generosity and support.

Every day, La Casa Norte volunteers make a significant impact on the lives of the children and families that we serve.
