WHO WE HELP
We partner with the following organizations to deliver new blankets and bedding to those who need it most.
A House in Austin
A group of parents, caregivers, professionals and neighbors that believe in empowering each other in the most challenging task given to us — raising our children. They desire to nurture and strengthen the bonds in families and be supported in all they do. A two-generational approach addresses the needs of parents and children to improve outcomes for the whole family.
By the Hand Kids Club
By The Hand is an after-school program that takes kids by the hand and walks with them from kindergarten through college, loving and nurturing them—mind, body and soul. They serve more than 1,600 kids from Cabrini-Green, Altgeld-Murray, Austin and Englewood, with property in North Austin to begin serving there.
In 2017, Common Pantry celebrated five decades of providing emergency food and social services to our neighbors in need. Common Pantry, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit food pantry, was founded in 1967 to combat hunger and food insecurity in specific north side neighborhoods in Chicago.
Deborah's Place is Chicago's largest provider of supportive housing exclusively for women and is recognized as an innovative leader among homeless service providers locally and nationally.
Healthy Hot Free Meals
Healthy Hot Free Meals focuses on making the maximum positive effort for the community. They started their free restaurant over the last year to help those in need and feed around 600 people per day! They not only provide free food, but also hotel rooms and other resources to people experiencing homelessness. And, they employ people who were formerly homeless to help them get a leg up.
House of the Good Shepherd
Founded in Chicago in 1859, the House of the Good Shepherd has opened its doors and hearts to women and children who face unimaginable trauma and fear. Our holistic transitional housing and family violence recovery programs empower women and children to leave behind the cycle of violent homes, step out of poverty, and embrace a future full of hope and independence.
Humble Design serves individuals, families, and veterans emerging from homelessness by transforming empty houses into welcoming homes using donated furniture and household goods.

They partner with families to construct the foundation of well-being by strengthening core life skills, incorporating early childhood development supports, building pathways to and preparation for education and employment, and expanding positive social networks and access to community resources.
