Facing Forward to End Homelessness (Facing Forward) ends the cycle of homelessness for families and individuals by offering hope, help, and housing. Facing Forward utilizes a Housing First model, which provides permanent supportive housing to chronically homeless individuals, families, and veterans. Under this model, we first ensure that clients have a safe, stable home, and then we empower them as they lead a forward-facing life. By providing permanent housing and a full array of services, including case management, healthcare, referrals for substance abuse treatment, mental health issues, education, and job training, we give homeless people in Chicago the tools they need to reclaim their lives.
Facing Forward is committed to empowering all individuals to envision a brighter future. We are always striving to ensure our approach is reflective of the unique paths which have led people to Facing Forward. We are committed to fostering a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment where each member of Facing Forward is empowered to be themselves, share ideas, and contribute to the mission and vision of the organization. We believe that we are stronge...r together. We want to serve as a foundation and work in partnership with clients, staff, vendors, and community partners. In unity, we can work to prevent and end homelessness for our clients, to partner and guide them on their journey toward stability, health, and self-sufficiency.
