MLK Day of Service
On Monday, January 16, 2023, from 10 AM-12 PM, in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, LINK Unlimited Scholars will be collecting housewarming baskets to support Deborah’s Place and Facing Forward to End Homelessness.
Deborah’s Place supports women who are experiencing homelessness through supportive housing and services that support their healing and transition to permanent housing.
Facing Forward to End Homelessness works to break the cycle of homelessness in Chicago by providing housing and social services that empower individuals to face forward to a new future.
