To Serve is To Lead-25 Years Serving The Homeless

Investing In People: One Individual At A Time Because All Lives Have Value!

A fundraising campaign for The Renaissance Collaborative, Inc


Often clients have experienced chronic homelessness and their ability to stabilize themselves is beyond their resources.  Please consider that your benevolence has a direct impact to TRC’s ability to provide starter kits for bed, bath linen, soap, toiletries, food, clothing and other operating costs. Your gift provides critical sponsorship that allows TRC to continue performing in a capacity that is relevant to our mission for underserved populations in the Chicago area.  For the last twenty-five years, we’ve observed how investing in a person’s ability to secure permanent supportive housing is a major milestone to move forward and diminish the feelings of being fragile and tossed.  

And over time, we’ve developed social impact enterprises that advocate sustainable self-sufficiency by providing case management, workforce development with on-site jobs at TRC for janitorial, reception/front desk and Bronzeville Organic Green (landscaping, commercial cleaning and snow removal).  TRC jobs allow our clients to build a work reference and earn money for their essential needs.
