HOW is changing the statistics.
HOW is at the forefront of a national movement to end homelessness in Chicago and across the nation through a holistic approach to combating homelessness. We are significantly expanding affordable, supportive housing to help the growing number of homeless families while providing them with the support services needed to empower them toward lifelong self-sufficiency.

Housing is a right, not a privilege. Support services are a necessary component to end the homeless cycle and promote self-sufficiency. Together we can make a difference. Join us in our fight against poverty and homelessness.
