Wherever we call home, we all live with homelessness

Homelessness is more than just living on the street.

It’s living in a shelter or spending your nights on someone else’s couch.
It’s not having an address to call your own, and not having the means to obtain one.

More than 86,000 People are homeless in Chicago
