Home 2 Home Project extends a helping hand to individuals and families in need as they transition into a new home. Many of their clients arrive in a home with little to no belongings, and although they are employed, almost all live below the poverty line. The H2H project collects gently used furniture and household goods from donations received from surrounding communities and repurposes them to create a warm, beautiful and welcoming environment for their clients with the ultimate goal of creating a living space where clients not only have basic needs met but feel proud to come home to.
Interfaith Community Partners The mission of Interfaith Community Partners is to maximize the independence and well-being of older adults by enabling connections with others in their community. Originally formed by seven local congregations, ICP meets the needs of older adults in the Greater Lyons Township Community. Their primary service is assisted transportation and they now accompany care partners to medical appointments, therapies, and assist with other essential daily living errands (grocery shopping, banking, etc.) At present there are 14 member congregations, and many of the volunteers are members of these churches.
Winning With Wyatt was established following the experience of a child, family, and community witnessing the impact of pediatric brain tumors in multiple children in La Grange, IL. Winning With Wyatt supports pediatric brain tumor research through funding and advocacy for better treatment methods and a cure for the disease.
