Countless everyday Chicagoans are living on the verge of poverty. They are single adults, young couples, families with children, and seniors - who may live in your neighborhood. They are working and able to make ends meet, that is, until they experience a life change that puts them in crisis or transition.
But, this is all preventable. Providing financial assistance and support services to Chicagoans at these critical moments in their lives has a stabilizing effect. Through a collaborative network of 60 partner agencies, the Emergency Fund distributes assistance on behalf of low-income Chicago residents facing emergency situations. At each agency, a volunteer Fund Manager disburses our funds to eliminate these crises and to promote self sufficiency.
