Working hard together

We asked our staff, interns and volunteers to write about what motivates them in their work for the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless. Their essays are posted daily as we mark National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week.

A short & sweet piece by Director of Organizing Jim Field:

I enjoy working for the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless because the formerly and currently homeless individuals I meet always impress me and inspire me to work hard.  I also enjoy the other staff who work so hard for CCH.
