Chicago Coalition for the Homeless is moving into a temporary office next week, thanks to office space generously donated by the Merchandise Mart Properties and its president, Christopher Kennedy.
“The generosity shown by Mr.Kennedy and the Merchandise Mart staff has been a great help to us,” said CCH Executive Director Ed Shurna.
CCH will resume work in a 9th floor office at the Merchandise Mart on Tuesday, Jan. 25. CCH staff will be located in Suite 941 for two to three months, until CCH can reopen its South Loop office or relocate to a permanent new office site.
CCH was displaced by damage from a Dec. 30 fire in the restaurant that was located below its rented, 2nd floor office in the South Loop.
Meanwhile, mail should be sent to the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless, P.O. Box 3255, Chicago, IL 60654. Mail sent to the former South Wabash address will be forwarded as well.
Phones were temporarily disconnected this week as CCH finalizes the move-in, but calls will be answered as usual by Tuesday morning. The phone number will remain (312) 435-4548.
