Who is Connections for the Homeless? 

Connections for the Homeless was founded in 1984, when a group of churches banded together to demand that the City of Evanston let them create a shelter for the homeless. Over the years, Connections has added programs that respond to the rising need for housing and supportive services in Evanston and throughout north suburban Cook County. They are now a multi-service agency that works with people at all points on the continuum of self-sufficiency.
