ChiIL Out and Help Out---Event Round Up

As a parent, I'm more invested than ever, in making the world a better place for my children.  Here's a round up of local events, for the grown ups, that support Chicago groups who are making a difference.



Our Brrlin Wall! - A Showcase of Art by Homeless Youths

On Monday, November 16th, more than 25 homeless youths will offer a free-of-charge show- Our Brrlin Wall!- featuring their visual and performance art.

Monday, 11/16, 7-9 p.m.
656 W. Barry, 2nd Unitarian Church
FREE!!!!!

 The director of the show wants to spread the word, so they have a good crowd for the scheduled appearance of Mayor Daley. 

All youth are active in the HELLO Youth Group, which is co-run by the Youth Futures legal aid clinic at the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless and The Night Ministry.  The youth group meets every Tuesday evening at the Broadway Youth Center.


For more information, contact CCH youth attorney Beth Cunningham at:beth@chicagohomeless.org

If you have the time, come on out and support the plight of our homeless youth (and the drastic funding cuts that they have suffered!)
