Big THANKS!!

BIG THANKS to our friends over at C.H. Robinson for their generous donation of over $1,800!

Every year the company picks a few non-profits to partner up with. Almost Home was one of five, thanks to Missy Hollis Evans' nomination. The Robinson team and staff held various fundraising events such as Go Fund Me pages, change drives and a bake sale.

We truly appreciate their efforts for supporting our mission to help the poor, needy, homeless and broken. Together we ARE DOING great things! Why? #becauseeveryoneneedshelpsometimes

Helping the 'most broken' of the Southland's homeless

Almost Home had an exciting opportunity to bring Donna Vickroy of the Daily Southtown to visit some of the friends we help who reside under one of the area bridges. Donna wrote a feature article about her visit. The article was published on May 19, 2017, and can be read here: http://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/daily-southtown/opinion/ct-sta-vickroy-homeless-bridges-st-0522-20170515-story.html

Noahs Ark Pre-school donation driver. January 2017

BIG THANKS to Christina Palazzolo and our friends at Noah's Ark Pre-school for doing a super successful donation drive for Almost Home. All that you see here will be handed out at our upcoming hair cutting event on January 28th. We are also sharing with two local families that have fallen on hard times. Why? Because everyone needs help sometimes. Everyone.

Blessing Bags 12-24-16

So very proud of my friends. Last night they delivered over 50 bookbags filled with blessings to those currently experiencing homelessness in the Downtown Chicagoland area.

Their daughters came up with the initial idea, and were part of the entire process; from collecting donations to filling the bags and then passing them out directly to those in need.

Because of YOUR generous donations, Almost Home was able to contribute a large amount of items to go in the bags.

Thank you for helping them to do GREAT things. Why? #becauseeveryoneneedshelpsometimes

St. Germaines Religious Ed Program Collection Dec 23, 2016

BIG THANKS to Karen, the children and their families at St. Germaine's Religious Ed program. They recently had a very successful collection for Almost Home. In... mid-November, their efforts provided us with over $200 in gift cards for our friends to use during the day to escape the cold by buying a hot coffee or a little something to eat. And last night they gave an additional $200 cash donation for us to use as we see fit.

I love the love. I love how our children are learning that everyone needs help sometimes. Everyone. Together we ARE DOING great things!
