Get involved with one of our programs:

Our Main Office on North Avenue houses our Information and Referral Specialists’ who provide community members with the appropriate resources and referrals to increase their housing stability. This office also offers a free clothing closet, free public telephone & fax machine, a notary, and computers that are available  for community members to apply for employment, construct a resume, apply for school, and receive digital job leads.

Our Solid Ground Supportive Housing Program provides male-identified youth, ages 16-21 who are homeless with housing for up to two years. Staff in this program further support residents by offering the skills they need to maintain stable housing and employment, rebuild their self-esteem, address barriers to stability and prepare them for continuing education.

Our Casa Corazon Program works with homeless and high-risk youth and is based in Humboldt Park, Logan Square and Back of the Yards communities. The program provides a daytime drop-in center where youth have access to food and support as they work towards stable housing, employment and educational achievement. We also offer 45 emergency beds for youth ages 18-24 experiencing homelessness at two shelters which open daily at 9:00pm and provide dinner, a bed to sleep in, breakfast and CTA transportation passes to clients.

Our Logan Square Office houses all of our direct service program staff including DCFS, Housing Advocacy and Case Management, Housing Locators, Rapid Re-Housing and Food Security Projects.
