Elizabeth and her family are finally home

All parents want a safe, stable, loving home for their children. Grassroots leader Elizabeth Maldonado, a mother of four, is no different. Although her journey to housing had been tough, her desire to provide a real home for her children was stronger. Today, the family of five shares a 3-bedroom apartment on the North Side of Chicago where they care for some pets, her oldest son bakes, her daughter paints, and Elizabeth proudly displays her art all over the apartment.  

Elizabeth and her kids finally feel at home. 



CCH welcomes eight new board members

In November, Chicago Coalition for the Homeless (CCH) was excited to add a superlative group of new board members to our governing board. These eight people bring an amazing breadth of knowledge, talent, and passion to an existing stellar line-up of committed board members. We are so incredibly grateful to each of them for giving their time and energy to CCH’s mission.

We asked each of them to answer this question: What motivates you to be part of our mission to prevent and end homelessness in Chicago/Illinois?



On winter solstice, we remember those we have lost

A message from Wayne Richard, Director of Organizing: As we marked the longest night of the year, the winter solstice on December 21, we turned our hearts and minds to those who must seek refuge in the streets, those who experience homelessness. Homelessness is an experience so severe that some don’t survive it. Each year for over a decade, we have gathered to memorialize those who have lost their lives while they were homeless, but we chose to forgo the memorial this year, as gathering in large congregate settings is still a significant risk to us all.
