Christy Agee

Associate Director, Project Management

“I started volunteering with the Chicago Help Initiative in 2015. Being a former restaurateur, I was immediately drawn to the hospitality, warmth, and menu quality during the Wednesday meals. Not only is everyone treated with dignity and respect, but also as a guest at a dinner table, something we so often take for granted. Since I’ve joined the Board, I’ve seen the organization expand and challenge itself to provide exceptional supplemental services for our weekly guests.”
