NCJW CNS is proud to launch its newest initiative, The EASE Homelessness Project (2021). 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.
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].
