To preserve our independent voice, CCH does not accept government funding. Instead, CCH is sustained by diversified support from foundations, corporations, and individual donors that share our commitment to prevent and end homelessness.

To support the Law Project and its Youth Futures mobile legal clinic,  the Justice Circle secures support from attorneys, law firms, and other professionals. More than 300 attorneys and 15 law firms have supported the Justice Circle since CCH launched it in 2009.

CCH also secures support from individuals and businesses through an annual membership donation. Memberships are $50 for a household or business and $10 for a student or low-income household. More than 5,000 individuals support CCH each year with donations of all sizes.

In Memoriam gifts are given in memory of men and women whose lives were dedicated to helping others, especially people living in poverty.

The Associate Board welcomes young professionals dedicated to making a difference in their volunteer work. Throughout the year, members assist with special events and fundraisers, staffing CCH events and managing the Associate Board’s own events, including a Cubs outing and Cheer for Change.

Partner Sponsors share a portion of their sales with CCH. Event sponsorships are provided by business and law firms, corporate and foundation donors.

CCH is a beneficiary of Community Shares of Illinois, a workplace giving campaign that promotes progressive change in our communities.
