GOOD NEWS PARTNERS

Image_202110190940

Every Monday evening from 5-6pm, the parents in our New Life Family Shelter go to a mandatory class. During that time, we need volunteers to watch and play with their kids. Because this is a Shelter, we never know the exact number of kids that will be there because families come and go on a daily basis. There could be anywhere from 2 - 10 kids at a time and the age range is from infant to 12 years old. You would be able to bring snacks and fun activities for the kids if you want. We have books, toys and some games. We are looking for someone that loves kids and is creative!

About GOOD NEWS PARTNERS

Location:

1600 W JONQUIL TERRACE, CHICAGO, IL 60626, US

Mission Statement

The mission of Good News Partners is to end homelessness and hopelessness with everyone God brings to us, and to foster justice and build bridges of reconciliation.

Description

As a faith-based, 501c3 asset-based community development organization, GNP is committed to providing access to affordable housing, economic development, and education to our resident partners as they transition from homelessness to self-sufficiency and homeownership. GNP does this through a housing continuum that includes: New Life Interim Housing, a 36-bed shelter for women, women with children, and intact families who are homeless or in immediate crisis; the Jonquil Hotel, a single room occupancy for 71 families; 44 units of subsidized rental housing; and 43 units of cooperative affordable housing for low- and very low-income families. Through our staff, community partners and volunteers, GNP reaches over 500 resident partners and 700 community residents each year.
