News & Events


#ILGiveCommunity is a one-day, statewide movement to do good in our own communities. By giving locally we can have a major impact on the causes we care about most while building a stronger, healthier, more vibrant Illinois!

By donating to Home of the Sparrow on May 30th-31st, you are locally supporting women and children on their journey from homelessness to self-sufficiency. Your support enables Home of the Sparrow to provide Housing, Shelter, Supportive Services and Outreach and Prevention to over 800 Homeless Women and Children. Your generosity helps us to provide Hope, Opportunity and Support to mothers and children in need.

We need your help to make Home of the Sparrow’s campaign a success, and we’ve included a few easy ways that you can support us.

Share and share alike. Online days of giving are successful because of our own networks. Help us grow our network by sending this email to your network and ask your friends to do the same.

Be socially (media) active. Use your social media networks: post onFacebook, tweet about #ILGiveCommunity, and share your love for your Home of the Sparrow. Ask others to do the same.

Become a fundraising champion. Everyone loves a champion, including us! We really need fundraising champions to help drive people to our #ILGiveCommunity profile on May 30-31st. Contact Katie Walleck at for more information on how to become a fundraising champion!
