About Us

Organized in 1980, CCH is the only non-profit in Illinois solely dedicated to advocating for and with people who experience homelessness. Staffed by community organizers, public policy specialists, and legal aid attorneys, our advocacy is done in partnership with the people who benefit by our work: Homeless students, unaccompanied youth, parents, ex-offenders, and low-wage workers work with CCH staff and community volunteers. Together, we advocate to develop affordable housing, preserve a shelter safety net, and protect access to public schools and school services, health care, fair wage jobs, and basic human rights and services. CCH creates opportunities where people who have coped with homelessness are shown that their voice matters.
