Our Casa Corazon Programworks with homeless and high-risk youth and is based in Humboldt Park, Logan Square and Back of the Yards communities. The program provides a daytime drop-in center where youth have access to food and support as they work towards stable housing, employment, and educational achievement. We also offer 45 emergency beds for youth ages 18-24 experiencing homelessness at two shelters which open daily at 9:00 pm and provide dinner, a bed to sleep in, breakfast and CTA transportation passes to clients.
At La Casa Norte, we believe that both, housing and supportive services are critical to ending homelessness. Our programs include life-skills and technology training, education support, employment-readiness, case management, therapy, food, clothing, and transportation assistance.
Our efforts to collaborate with an extensive network of human service organizations allow us to offer additional resources to our clients. Through the support of our partners, we are also able to offer clients access to mental health and substance abuse treatment, medical care, day care, legal advocacy and other needed assistance to support their increased housing and economic stability.
