What the Media Leaves Out

With national attention being drawn to the Englewood community after the unfortunate death of Darion Alberts, many became aware of the violent and volatile living conditions that plague our impoverished area on the south side of Chicago. But the media did not show that many of our households are ripped apart due to domestic violence, forcing homelessness on fearful mothers and their children.    With compassion for those mothers who have reached our doors, clutching their children along with scraps of salvaged belongings, we have realized that the problem of forced homelessness has widened.  Our response is to seek methods to quickly find permanent housing and stability for homeless women and children.
