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

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.
