What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Hunger Relief

We are one of the very few charities that does mobile distributions in the city of Chicago! Volunteers and staff members drive around all areas of the city, including the south and west sides, to distribute meal packages to the homeless. Both perishable and non-perishable food items are donated to Humanity Relief through corporate sponsors, fellow charities and generous donors like you!

We also temporarily provide groceries to the families of refugees, domestic abuse victims and single parents after furnishing their apartments. Families being resettled must have adult members enrolled in our Skill Development program explained below!

Population(s) Served

Donations such as clothing, hygiene products, furniture, medical equipment, electrical appliances, school supplies, vehicles, etc are usually donated however PLEASE CONTACT US TO VERIFY WHAT IS CURRENTLY BEING ACCEPTED!

In-Kind gift donations will distributed to the homeless alongside our Hunger Relief packages and be dropped off to the families of domestic abuse victims, refugees and single parents.

Monetary donations are encouraged from donors exclusively providing goods due to the fact that the pick up/drop off and sorting/cleaning of such donations requires funding and volunteer labor.

Population(s) Served

Our staff mentors and volunteer teachers are certified and experienced in working with domestic abuse victims and refugees. After assessing each client we work with them both one on one and in-class to not only develop English reading and writing skills but to also eliminate their accents!

We also provide computer courses to our clients to improve their odds of obtaining employment. Clients may take both ESL and computer courses together if needed.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

-Provide relief from hunger and lack of housing while developing skills to assist domestic abuse victims, refugees and single parents obtain
employment.

-Provide food, clothing and hygiene items to the homeless through mobile distributions in our city while actively looking for funding for a food
pantry

Our resettlement process includes: domestic abuse victims, refugees and single parents.

Step 1: Furnish apartments for these individuals and provide basic necessities like school supplies, clothing, hygiene products, etc. so their
families can live with dignity and ease.

Step 2: We temporarily drop off groceries to the clients and sign up the adult members of the family to our skill development program

Step 3: Our certified and experienced trainers do assessments in person/online with each new client to place them in our basic or advanced
ESL and computer training courses. This improves their chances of obtaining employment. We keep record of each family that has
been assisted, the amount spent on each specific family and the financial/employment progress of the adult members of the family
signed up in our Skill Development Classes. We also distribute both perishable and non-perishable food items as well as in-kind gifts
like jackets, socks, hygiene items, etc to the homeless in the city of Chicago, including the south and west sides. Our Hunger Relief
program does not receive enough funding as of yet to start a food pantry however that is our long term goal.
