We have selected to support Heartland Alliance with our fundraising efforts at the 2019 CAAHP regional conference in Chicago and hope you will donate to the Thursday evening's silent auction. To contribute to the silent auction please fill out Silent Auction Submission form.
Heartland Alliance, one of the world's leading anti-poverty organizations, works in communities in the U.S. and abroad to serve those who are homeless, living in poverty, new immigrants, refugees or those seeking safety from trafficking. It provides a comprehensive array of services in the areas of health, housing, jobs and justice - and leads state and national policy efforts, which target lasting change for individuals and society. Heartland has over 850 active volunteers who volunteer every single day of the year. Our amazing volunteers work tirelessly to help refugees get settled into new homes, mentor new young immigrant children , tutor citizenship classes, make sure our food centers are stocked with healthy choices for those with HIV/AIDS, provide healthcare and therapy to those who've experienced trauma, provide assistance at O'Hare airport and legal assistance - just to name a few. Last year Heartland Alliance volunteers contributed over 129,000 hour of service. Heartland could not do the vital work it does without the dedication of every single volunteer.
We believe everyone in society benefits when people who experience disparities in safety, health, housing, education, economic opportunity and justice are able to exit poverty, heal from trauma, achieve stability; secure their rights; and shape policies that respond to their needs.
Your generous support would help us expand our volunteer efforts, enable us to enrich our program and allow us to support the efforts of all those who enrich the lives of others.
