To provide Hope, Opportunity and Support that empowers women and children, as they journey from homelessness to self-sufficiency.
Home of the Sparrow's mission is to provide Hope, Opportunity and Support that empowers women and children as they journey from homelessness to self-sufficiency. Since 1987, Home of the Sparrow has provided transitional and affordable housing, and supportive programs and services to women and children in our community. Home of the Sparrow currently operates a short-term transitional shelter in McHenry, three subsidized apartments, as well as 26 units of affordable housing. At any given time, approximately 65% of Home of the Sparrow residents are children. Caught in complex cycles of poverty, there is no simple reason why women and children lose their home.What We Do
Home of the Sparrow provides a safe and stable living environment in our short-term transitional shelter and apartment programs. Our programs and services include case management, counseling, education and referral to community resources. Each woman who is accepted into Home of the Sparrow's shelter program develops goals and a plan focused on ending homelessness. As a result, 90% of the individuals and families who exit our programs achieve permanent housing
