National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week, November 13 through November 21, 2021

Join the Movement! Your contribution will enable HOS to provide basic necessities to women and children who are experiencing homelessness, such as housing, food and clothing!

Homelessness can happen to anyone. The majority of women that Home of the Sparrow serves never saw it coming – the loss of a job, death of a spouse, domestic violence, a serious illness, or a partner walking away from their family leaving little to no support. Help change a life today with a monetary online donation at!

Last year alone, your support directly impacted the lives of 378 individuals (unduplicated) in McHenry County and Northern Illinois. HOS helped an additional 2,200+ individuals through phone referrals to community resources. This is your chance to help women lift themselves out of the cycle of homelessness, domestic violence and other issues that led them to HOS. The goal of HOS’s programs and services is to provide Hope, Opportunity, and Support that will empower women and children as they journey from homelessness to self-sufficiency. HOS provides them with the skills and resources to rebuild their life and become independent.

Thank you for your support this holiday season!
