CHI is a finalist in 2015 Innovation Awards!

We are so proud and pleased to announce that The Chicago Help Initiative was selected as a Top 75 Finalist for the 2015 Chicago Innovation Awards.

In the words of the Chicago Innovation Awards organization, this competition is "the largest annual celebration of innovation in the Midwest. Chicago's business and civic leaders come together to honor the creative spirit of the Chicago region by recognizing the most innovative new products and services introduced in the market."

The project that CHI was selected for was a pocket-sized Resource Guide which caring people may distribute to Chicago's homeless and underprivileged. The guide is chock full of information on where those in need may find food, shelter, medical care and employment assistance.
