Program Update
"Greetings, friends! Although Spring Semester concluded on May 2, there has still been a lot of activity in the month of May. Our field trip to the Lincoln Park Zoo on May 4 was our largest event ever, and a turnout of over 200 people made the evening truly special and memorable."
Program Update
Homelessness and Higher Education
By: Alex Galvan
 
"This past week La Casa Norte, a Chicago-based organization that works to serve youth and families confronting homelessness, held its 4th Annual “More Than Ever” Education Luncheon in support of their Youth in College Program. In 2018, the organization was successful in raising over $44,000 to provide scholarships for students exiting transitional housing programs and participating in higher education."
