We are a part of a diverse community, a group of humans that we love. Here are just a few organizations that we support throughout the year.
BSA is a vehicle to empower and elevate queer and trans voices, particularly those belonging to people of color, to allow our communities a seat at the table on key decision making processes that impact the community of Chicago.
The Food Depository is part of a united community effort working to bring food, dignity and hope to our Cook County neighbors. Acting as the hub for a network of more than 700 food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and other programs, these programs provide food where it’s most needed. They also address the root causes of hunger. Public benefits outreach and job training programs offer support for our neighbors to overcome poverty.
The Trevor Project's mission is to end suicide among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning young people. Their vision is a world where all LGBTQ young people see a bright future for themselves. Their goal is to serve 1.8 million crisis contacts annually, by the end of our 25th year, while continuing to innovate on their core services.
In 1979, three women in the Uptown neighborhood saw the plight of women who were homeless. They were often cold and seeking shelter, hungry, highly vulnerable, and alone. Sarah’s Circle was started with compassion and spirit of service, and our agency continues to be a safe, welcoming place for women experiencing homelessness. With our resources and services, women are able to access shelter, food, showers, community, and more.
We also donate to a wide variety of schools and nonprofit organizations in Chicago and beyond.
