As many of you know, I work for a homeless service agency, JOURNEYS | The Road Home. JOURNEYS serves anyone who is experiencing homelessness or is at risk of becoming homeless in the northwest suburbs of Cook County.
We are in the middle of a Capital Campaign for a new building. This exciting project will transform our abilty to better assist the almost 1,000 people who are in need of help and support, with shelter, supportive services, and even affordable housing units.
Now I am asking for you to join JOURNEYS in this effort. I set a goal for myself to personally raise $5,000 - in addition to the funding I'm raising in my day job! ;)
Everyone is closer to homelessness than we realize or care to admit. No one knows the struggles someone else is facing, whether it is a job loss, medical bills, mental health, or addiction issues. These all can bring the threat of homelessness to be a sudden reality. Help JOURNEYS be there as an open door for when it is needed. Building for HOPE is the name of the campaign but it is also what we do everyday as we help people on The Road Home.
