We are eager to provide temporary & permanent housing to as many homeless people living on our Chicago streets.

OUR MAIN GOALS:

  Transform shipping containers into sleeping quarters for nightly shelter.

 Restore multi-unit buildings to provide a more permanent living situation for those in need.

We will be purchasing slightly distressed multi-family homes and vacant lots in the city of Chicago.

Renovating

Money raised from donations and our GoFundMe platform will be used to renovate the properties and container homes.

Furnishing

We will furnish each home to quality living standards to shelter those who unfairly experience marginalization.

We Have the Power to Alleviate Homelessness, and We’re Doing Something About It

Meet the Woman in Charge       

I want to create sleeping quarters for Chicago’s forgotten beloved ones ⏤ somewhere safe and comfortable, a community within a community. I want to help my neighborhood friends get off the street, provide them temporary residential solutions they can call home, and place them in job-readiness programs, while they await their very own apartment to become available.
