Taste of Fall Tickets now on sale!
Join us and support LPCS!
Friday, October 18th at Gallery 1028 This
year's event is going to be even tastier than previous years, with many
new vendors and signature cocktails. The Tony Bondi Project will return
with brand new music, the Ultimate Tasting Raffle has nearly doubled in
size, and we will have opportunities for you to take bottles of wine
home that very night! New to this year, there will be an Art Gallery
featuring LPCS Guest and Graduate work as well. All of the proceeds will
go toward helping our Guests overcome the financial hurdles that would
prevent them from opening doors to their own homes.
This event will surely sell out, so be sure to get your tickets early! Click Here to register.

Kick It Home, Chicago!
September 21st, 9AM-12PM at Jonquil Park
To bring together homeless shelters across Chicago in an effort to build
relationships with one another, form a sense of teamwork and
accomplishment between the Guests and staff, raise awareness to the
community and break stereotypes about the homeless population, and offer
an entertaining outlet for exercise and activity.
Purpose and Goals of the League:
Internally, the league will give the staff and the guests a chance to
interact and develop group activity skills. In any profession, people
must be able to work in groups as strongly as they do independently, and
this will emphasize that importance. The guests will also have the
opportunity to be a part of the community in an active way, with an
emphasis on the importance of exercise and remaining healthy.
Professionally, the league will allow the staff to meet people that are
involved in various shelters throughout Chicago. This is a great way to
build relationships and lines of communication. By developing
relationships with other shelters, we are always reminded that we are a
part of the same goal even if we have different modes of reaching that
goal. We can get ideas from one another and inevitably, strengthen our
own program by connecting to other people. What may have worked for one
shelter can help another and what is not being utilized by one shelter
can be passed along to the next.
