Families Helping Families - A grass roots neighborhood organization started by a Naperville mom in 1994, with the sole focus of helping homeless families in DuPage County. FHF provides apartments and supportive services to homeless families while they are working to reclaim their lives. Our adopted families are usually homeless mothers and their children who have been victims of domestic violence or poverty. These are mothers who are struggling to provide housing, food, and even clothing for their children - women who want to become self-sufficient but lack the financial means to pay for rent and the education to obtain the kind of jobs that will allow them to provide for their families. While the circumstances surrounding their housing crises differ, there is one universal truth - they are deeply concerned about their children and truly believe that, with assistance, they can provide a better life for them.
Family Shelter Service - Since its founding in 1976, Family Shelter Service has helped thousands of families who seek safety and support. Seven days a week, 24 hours a day, we are here for countless DuPage families who find their lives shattered by domestic abuse. Offering, shelter, counseling, advocacy and education, our goal is simple: to help them rebuild their lives and break the cycle of domestic violence for themselves, their families and future generations. The result is a safer community for all.
Loaves & Fishes Community Services - Naperville CARES and Loaves & Fishes expanded their longtime partnership by integrating operations to provide more effective programs to the community. Over the years Naperville CARES developed extremely effective homeless prevention services with their Emergency Assistance and Car Program. Loaves & Fishes became one of the best food pantries in the county. Together we are able to provide essential needs as well as emergency financial services and resources.
