About Us

All Chicago’s mission is to unite our community and resources to provide solutions that ensure and sustain the stability of home.

On an average night in 2016, nearly 6,000 people could be found on our streets and in our shelters. Tens of thousands more are just one unexpected setback away from joining them. These are our neighbors, this is our city, and together we can ensure that we all have stable homes.

All Chicago prevents and ends homelessness through:

Emergency Financial Assistance: We provide critical financial assistance to people experiencing an emergency that could lead to homelessness or other crises.
Impact: In 2016, more than $2.7 million help
ed more than 3,200 households and 94% were in their homes after one year.

Community Partnerships: We convene key stakeholders and drive collaboration to lead Chicago’s city-wide response to ending homelessness.
Impact: In 2015, homelessness in Chicago decreased by 17%.

Data Collection and Analysis: We manage a city-wide database to collect and analyze data on people experiencing, or at risk of, homelessness and the services they receive.
Impact: In 2016, our data analysis was used to drive discussion, set strategy, and make policy and funding decisions on the federal and local levels.

Training and Research: We provide our partners with trainings, tools, information and research to address homelessness more effectively.
Impact: In 2016, we hosted more than 42 trainings for more than 900 attendees on topics like Legal Issues for Homeless Youth.
