Opening Thursday, March 16th, from 6PM - 7:30PM
Join us for a conversation about how to end homelessness in Chicago and Illinois. Hear from advocates and practitioners actively engaged in solving homelessness, by providing immediate resources, connecting families with sustainable housing, speaking up for residents’ rights, or shaping housing policy. In addition to talking about all of the efforts currently underway to address homelessness, we’ll discuss how anyone can join in to help make sure that everyone in our city and state has a stable, affordable, safe place to call home. Light refreshments will be served.
