MissionWe have been here since 1969 answering the emergency needs of residents of the Chicago South Suburban Area. We are a United Way agency. Currently, in striving to help the truly needy first, we are forced to require documented verification of South Suburban residency and all circumstances of any emergency. We are here to offer relief and a helping hand to the poor among us. We believe in helping our neighbors because we have no doubt that Caring is the key to true community!
