Homelessness Addressed at Open House

August 05, 2011

Those of us lucky enough to live in metro Chicago real estate might not be aware of the homelessness epidemic on the North Shore or how you can help.

It is estimated that approximately 950 people are homeless in Lake County, and a majority of those are women and children.

The Lake County Haven in Libertyville is hosting an open house on Saturday, August 6 to educate local families about homelessness in Lake County.

From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., attendees will be able to tour the shelter and see where women and children with no homes are housed. Former Lake County Haven residents will also be on hand.

Lake County Haven staff will be there to answer questions, give facts on homelessness in the area and explain how North Shore residents can help the Haven achieve its mission.

The Lake County Haven has helped empower homeless women and their children achieve permanent, independent living since 1992. The agency has served more than 750 people through its programs and services, and there are still many more to help.

Residents can assist through donations of money or items and by volunteering their time.

Find out more on Saturday at this important open house.
