They help us with food, social services. Nothing but love, that's how I feel about the Chicago Help Initiative.

Andre

Nobody should go hungry. With the Chicago Help Initiative, you don't have to.

Bruce

A lot of people don't have shelter, food, clothing. They need help. And they get it here.

Tracy

Goodness. All-encompassing goodness. In a world filled with so many who have so little, they give so much.

We're here to help:

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, a higher percentage of Americans are living in extreme poverty than they have ever measured before. Not everyone can enjoy abundance, but The Chicago Help Initiative (CHI) is here to lend a helping hand to assist homeless and low-income people in Chicago. Please join us in serving delicious meals to those in need and break the cycle of hunger in an effort to make an impact within the Chicago community. 

For more on the organization and the many ways you can help, please download our Program Overview and Guidelines for New Volunteers.
