Hope4Chicago believes in the importance of assisting individuals that suffer with mental health issues. Many times these individuals are overlooked and we at Hope4Chicago feel that they are just important. These individuals are proactive and productive. Our community clean-up events have had many of these individuals. These individuals have brought such joy, accomplishment and pride on both sides and as Hope4Chicago grows we will continue to look at the "overlooked".
Hope4Chicago's goal is to provide a measure of enrichment and empowerment through communication and technology. We feel that the elderly have so much knowledge to share and given the opportunity they will find much joy in being a part of the conversation. Hope4Chicago will offer our elderly some basic phone technology so they can also feel connected to the world. We believe the elderly should not have to sit back the rest of there life. For more information please contact us.
