The Bed & Bread Club is a monthly giving program dedicated to fighting hunger and homelessness throughout our community.
When you pledge to give, you’re not just providing food and shelter, you’re offering second chances.
We all have dreams. We dream of being successful or being happy. We dream about finding love and living a stress-free life. But the homeless in our community dream of simply surviving another night on the street.
Since opening early last year, Shield of Hope, the nation’s first emergency homeless assessment and rapid-response center (EHARC), has helped an average of 300 families (450 people) a month. In fact, the average length of stay for these families is about 9 days before our staff can help them find more permanent shelter options. The staff also help an additional 200 people not staying at Shield of Hope to find shelter.
Shield of Hope is just one of many programs supported by our Bed & Bread Club. Because of our generous donors, we make dreams come true by giving homeless individuals and families the tools and resources to begin again with hope and joy. We can shield them from doubt and darkness.
Your gifts ensure The Salvation Army has the resources to provide shelter, food, clothing, counseling,
and medical care for anyone who walks through our doors.
As a Bed & Bread Club member, your support ensures The Salvation Army can provide safe shelter and nutritious meals to people all across Chicagoland, including families staying in our new Shield of Hope center.Donate Now
