NCJW CNS launches its newest initiative The EASE Homelessness Project in 2021-22. The project’s goal is to Educate our community about Chicagoland’s homeless population, to Advocate for the homeless at both the local and state level, and to provide Service opportunities for NCJW members in partnership with organizations providing direct services to the homeless. Our belief that Education + Advocacy + Service = Empowerment is at the heart of this project. There is no single definition of homelessness, but the scope of the population includes youth, adults, and families.
The evening of November 4th, our community partners, Deborah’s Place and The Night Ministry, will share their expertise and the stories and needs of this often-forgotten population via Zoom. Thanks to two NCJW members Paula Wallrich and Bev Frank – both tireless advocates for the homeless community – for helping to create this initiative. This project is still in development and seeks committee members to help create future programming and volunteer opportunities. For more information on the project, email [email protected].
