Helping Local Children & Families in Need
A HUGE thank you to one of our community partners who has committed to donating $500 to FHFC from every closing! THANK YOU Agentopia Chicago for choosing to partner with us so we can continue to meet the needs of children and families experiencing crisis and/or hardship!
Wow, what a year! COVID19 really turned the world upside down in ways we could have never imagined. Because of this, we have seen a dramatic rise in the number of families needing assistance, and as such, we are deeply appreciative of our donors and sponsors. Families Helping Families Chicagoland has been very fortunate to serve our local communities in a variety of ways. You have provided children in foster care with birthday presents, given warm coats to those in need, provided birthday celebrations for children in emergency domestic violence shelters, helped families affected by major fires, assisted families who needed food, and fulfilled many, many, many immediate needs. In the coming months, we expect to have more immediate need requests than we have experiences to date, and we are so very grateful for your support.
Together, we can help families in our community through this pandemic. There is still so much work to be done.
With your help, we will continue to support hundreds of families and children through:
● fulfillment of immediate help to meet urgent needs for families in crisis
● collection of new and used school supplies every summer for underfunded schools in the area
● collection of birthday gifts every month and holiday gifts every year for children in foster care
● sponsoring birthday celebrations for children in emergency domestic violence shelters
● large scale food donation partnerships with local agencies
Your support is vital to help us meet the growing needs of families and children in our community and have a lasting impact.
You can make a difference in your community today by making an online donation.
