Building Lives. Building Communities. Double Your Impact Today!

Homelessness has grown in Chicago and LPCS continues to ask ourselves what more we can do to be a part of the solution. We know expanding our programs and facilities will change the lives of hundreds of homeless men and women in Chicago, but we cannot do that without your generous support. We are asking, during this season of Thanksgiving, for your financial support of our 2016 Annual Appeal which is the single biggest source of funding for LPCS. Thank you for being part of the LPCS community! Click here to make your contribution today!
