A huge thank you to all of the generous contributors who  supported our work during our 5th annual benefit, which closed on April 2.

Your support makes it possible for us to continue:

  • Advocating for public policies and investments that expand affordable housing & end homelessness in Illinois
  • Training staff on the front lines of housing nonprofits so they can expand their skills, keep up to date on rapidly shifting issues and guidelines, and better serve our communities
  • Educating key decision-makers, media, and advocates about affordable housing issues affecting Illinois

We also want to thank you for continuing to try new things with us. This was the first time Housing Action has hosted a virtual cooking class, created a guidebook, or offered housing justice t-shirts; it was exciting to bring people together in new ways and try new ideas.

From all of us at Housing Action, thank you!

All proceeds support our work to create an Illinois where everyone has a good, stable home.


Past Annual Benefits

Starting in 2017 with a Toast to Housing Justice to celebrate our 30th anniversary, Housing Action Illinois has brought housing champions together each year at our annual benefit. In 2020, due to COVID-19, we cancelled our in-person event and took our benefit virtual. Thanks to our generous supporters, it was a success, and we exceeded our goal of raising $6,000. Thanks to everyone who has joined us over the years!
