“Whoever has two coats must share with anyone who has none; and whoever has food must do likewise.”   Luke:3-11

2021 Update

 

Assistance is needed to help prepare food for Lincoln Park Community Shelter.  Because we can now use the church kitchen, we will gather together to make dinner for the shelter. We will start the preparations at 2:30 and plan to be finished by 4:30.  “Many hands make for light work”, so please consider helping with this worthwhile project.  Please contact Luan Zoellner at lzoellner@ameritech.net or (847) 525-8353 if you are available to assist.  (We will be wearing masks to protect everyone.)

 

We will coordinate volunteers through Sign Up Genius to ensure all meal components are accounted for on our assigned dates. You may sign up directly for the date you would like to volunteer for below:

Lincoln Park Community Services is a comprehensive social service agency serving adult men and women who are experiencing homelessness, providing interim housing, meals, and a targeted array of services to over 300 people each year. The Interim Housing Program accommodates up to 35 guests each night year round.

 

In addition to meals and safe living space, the Interim Housing Program provides storage space, showers, and laundry facilities for guests. The average length of stay is seven weeks, although there is no time limit provided guests make progress toward their goals.
