Center for Changing Lives is a bilingual, bicultural Financial Opportunity Center in Chicago that offers free HUD approved housing counseling, free financial coaching & planning and employment career coaching. We are seeking a volunteer graphic designer to help develop new flyers and create images to be used to elevate our programs/services.
The mission of Center for Changing Lives is to partner with those held back by a lack of resources and economic opportunity in order to uncover possibilities, overcome barriers, and realize their potential. Our vision is a community where everyone thrives. We believe in activating poder (power) for Black and Brown community vitality. Our Theory of Change begins with the framework of poder (Spanish for 'to be able to' and 'power') to uplift self, family, network and cross-cultural communities. We believe that everyone is creative, resourceful and whole.
About Center for Changing Lives
1955 N. St Louis Ave, 101, CHICAGO, IL 60647, US
Center for Changing Lives mission is to provide comprehensive support to serve, empower and advocate for community residents experiencing homelessness and housing instability so they may obtain and maintain permanent housing.
Center for Changing Lives (CCL) is a little agency making a big impact. Successfully providing a range of innovative services, CCL brings financial coaching to a population traditionally deemed unprepared for it: Households currently experiencing or at risk of homelessness. The agency offers a mini-continuum of bundled services that include housing, financial and employment coaching coordinated and integrated with income support and homelessness prevention services. CCL is at the forefront of utilizing coaching and financial capability services to prevent and end homelessness, particularly among the predominantly Latino population on the Northwest side of Chicago. CCL believes integrated, comprehensive services delivered in a long-term, highly transformative, empowered partnership are needed to ensure households move beyond crisis to stability, from immediate considerations to future ones. That belief has informed a model that is both qualitatively and quantitatively successful and has resulted in increases in participants’ financial capability, income, and self-sufficiency.
CCL’s mission is to provide comprehensive support to serve, empower and advocate for community residents experiencing homelessness or housing instability so they may obtain and maintain permanent housing. The vision is to transform lives and inspire neighbors to build a stable, supported and connected community. Financial instability, including under- and unemployment, continues to be a leading reason why many of CCL’s clients are experiencing homelessness. In response, CCL utilizes the Center for Working Families (CWF) model to increase employment, mobilize subsidies and mainstream benefits, and reduce household fees and expenses simultaneously, taking a holistic approach to building financial stability necessary for long-term housing stability. CCL is unique in that it is the only organization using the CWF model to serve households, including single parents with children, experiencing and at-risk of homelessness who are living in shelters. By successfully utilizing this model with those experiencing homelessness, CCL is bridging the workforce, financial and homeless services systems and developing an evidence-based argument for using financial services to addresses housing instability.
