BENEFITING: LENA WASHINGTON S FOOD & SHELTER FOUNDATION
Times are perilous for families in Chicago and the social-service agencies working to serve them. We are a not-for-profit organization that assists homeless women with children in the North Lawndale Community. We are faced with possible closure due to a budget short fall and are seeking help from individuals to save our organization. If we do not raise $25,000 in the next month, 10 families with children and two staff who live on site stand to be immediatey put out in the cold during the winter holidays, a time when other shelters across the city have no vacancies. Please help us continue to provide housing, case management, medical attention, and tutoring to the women and children who come through our door with nowhere else to go.
