JOURNEYS provides shelter and services to those who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless in suburban Cook County. The goals of the Emergency Shelter Program is to provide hospitality, food and overnight shelter to the homeless between October 1 and April 30, seven days a week.  The sites are staffed entirely by volunteers with an average of 75 guests staying at the sites each night.

Many thanks to everyone who helped make this drive a success! Our thanks also go out to the Community and Family Involvement committee for their work organizing this great philanthropy project for Ivy Hill!
