A Home is a Human Right.
The Chicago Coalition for the Homeless reports that over 16,000 CPS students experienced housing insecurity in the 2018 - 2019 school year. This week, we invite your family to think about how stable housing can help to transform communities. Check out this story from Vin Shambry, about his experience with homelessness growing up and how going to camp helped him feel like a kid again.
For Vin, camp was a place where he could have fun and celebrate being a kid, while also honoring the hardships that his family was experiencing. Homes provide people with a comfort and stability that support them in many ways beyond the basics of shelter. Communities can transform when everyone has access to a home, and the feelings of safety, acceptance, and stability that they foster.
