Executive Director
Chicago Help Initiative

"The Chicago Help Initiative is an amazing and unique organization.

It is two communities – the guests we serve, whom we try to connect to the best resources and opportunities and the most caring and committed volunteers that I can imagine. I like to think that whether someone is with us for one meal or for fifty and whether they are dining with us or serving with us, that they will leave with something positive. It is truly a privilege to be here. "
