"The world needs more win-win situations."
- Nick Baker, Takeout 25 Oak Park member + Housing Forward Meal Donor
Takeout 25 Oak Park was created to support our local restaurants. By donating here, you can do that and provide hot meals for individuals and families who are in Housing Forward’s Interim Housing Program. This new Oak Park-based program provides individual accommodations and meals to people experiencing homelessness. Once enrolled, clients receive services that focus on a clear path to permanent housing.
All donations made through this site will fund the purchase of meals from local restaurants only, which will be delivered to Interim Housing clients. Meals will be purchased when sufficient funds to purchase two nights (or more) of meals have accumulated.
Housing Forward is a local organization helping transition people from housing crisis to housing stability. Last year the agency impacted the lives of more than 2,000 individuals and families in west suburban Cook County.
Thank you for considering a donation to Housing Forward through Takeout 25. We all win when our community joins forces to support each other.
In addition to online gifts, checks may be made out to Housing Forward and mailed to Housing Forward c/o Erik Johnson, Director of Development, 1851 S. 9th Ave. Maywood, IL 60153. Please include "Takeout 25" in the memo line.
Housing Forward is a 501(c)3 organization. Your donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
