Happy new year – and thank you!

In challenging times, the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless remained effective because of support from our members, donors and advocacy partners – you make effective work possible.

Getting a homeless child re-enrolled in school, restoring a $4.7 million state cutback to homeless shelters, persuading Chicago to add 40 beds (21% more capacity) to overnight youth shelters – for progress large and small, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Best wishes for a happy 2012 from the leaders, staff and board of the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless!
