Lynda Schueler, Executive Director of Housing Forward testified in support of House Bill 4955 at the Appropriations Human Services committee hearing. HB 4955 would release funding for housing and homeless services in Illinois.
On Monday, April 18, Housing Forward welcomed almost 200 guests at the Annual Progressive Dinner to help those in the community that are experiencing or at-risk of homelessness.
The event, now in its 14th year, was hosted in three locations in Oak Park, Winberie's, Maya Del Sol and the Oak Park Township Senior Center, and included donations from Buzz Cafe, Cucina Paradiso, Garland Flowers, Eli's Cheesecake Factory and sponsored by corporate partner, BMO Harris Bank.
I read an article in the March 14th issue of Time Magazine the other day by Josh Sanburn titled “The radically simple solution to homelessness.”
10-year-old River Forest resident and winner of Fox TV’s MasterChef Junior cooking competition, Addison Osta Smith, support Housing Forward.
Please call or email your state representative to let them know that we need their support for HB 4955 to effectively transition people out of homelessness.
