On Wednesday, October 2, CAR Foundation trustees and CAR past presidents attended the 10th Annual Mercy Housing Gala. The CAR Foundation is a long-time supporter of Mercy Housing, a nonprofit that provides affordable housing for low-income individuals, families, seniors and people with special needs.
At the gala, Mercy Housing acknowledged its sponsors and shared stories that demonstrated how their support has helped residents. In a touching video, Mercy Housing shared the story of a homeless individual, who now has a home and a job with the help of the organization. Another story showed women who found refuge in Mercy Housing after leaving abusive relationships.
Journalist Robin Robinson was the evening’s emcee, and Illinois Deputy Governor Sol Flores was the keynote speaker.
The CAR Foundation is always honored to support Mercy Housing and all the great work they do!
