Hesed House is a national model for ending homelessness – one person, one family at a time. They are the second-largest homeless shelter in the State of Illinois, and the largest shelter outside of the city of Chicago.

Their campus of centralized, highly skilled professionals collaborate to provide the tools necessary to help individuals and families break free of the shackles binding them to homelessness. With the help of professional staff, alliances with outside agencies over a thousand people are served through Hesed House’s shelter and three housing programs annually. At their Comprehensive Homeless Resource Center, people receive support related to housing, support systems, life skills, legal issues, physical/emotional abuse, mental/physical health, and much more. Men, women, and families of all ages seek our help in their time of need for many different reasons.

Typically, more than 7,500+ volunteers serve at Hesed House each year. Representing over 90 area churches, businesses, and service organizations, these groups are a special part of our organization’s fabric. They help provide breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and they share hope for those experiencing homelessness every year. They are grateful to the many groups and individuals who continue to support us through food and financial donations. Contact them today to learn how you can get involved as a volunteer, host an urgent needs drive, have a Hike for Hesed, or other ways to engage!
