Helping Homeless Youth Get Back To School

The Chicago Public Schools office of Students in Temporary Living Situations reports that 17,894 homeless Chicago children and teens attend CPS-run schools.

To help these students reach their full potential, Care For Friends is launching a new after-school program this year which will provide a safe place to eat, study, and build community - and we are working with DePaul USA to achieve a goal of getting at least three program participants accepted into college by the time the school year ends.

Our first weekly program is this month - and we are thrilled that Logan Theater has agreed to host a movie night for our students to get it started with style.
