The Good Word
Lazarus House won an AT&T* "Investing in Illinois Award" for its non-profit work to help people in Illinois. Lazarus House will receive $1,000 from AT&T to be used to provide emergency shelter, transitional housing, and homeless prevention services to those in crisis.
"There are great non-profit organizations improving lives in Illinois. By supporting these organizations, we're strengthening the communities we serve," said Jaci Kator, external affairs manager, AT&T. 

Senator Karen McConnaughay nominated Lazarus House for the recognition from AT&T Illinois. The AT&T "Investing in Illinois Awards" provide resources and recognition to organizations and programs that improve lives in their communities and the state.
