ABOUT ALL CHICAGO:
On an average night more than 5,000 people could be found on our streets and in our shelters. Tens of thousands more are just one unexpected setback away from joining them. These are our neighbors, this is our city, and together we can ensure that we all have stable homes.
All Chicago strengthens our community’s collective efforts to end homelessness, guided by a vision of impact, influence, and inspiration. As our name implies, All Chicago brings together corporations, foundations, non-profits, service providers, individual donors, and volunteers from all neighborhoods and backgrounds in a united effort to make homelessness history in Chicago.
All Chicago manages the Homeless Management Information System, the database which contains data on Chicagoans experiencing, or at risk of, homelessness and the services they receive. Our team supports more than 1000 individuals with training, helpdesk services, and running and interpreting reports. Chicago also leverages this data to drive allocation decisions, set strategy and policy, and monitor progress toward ending homelessness.
We bring a sense of urgency to our work, and actively seek to maintain a culture of innovation and collaboration. Come work with passionate, like-minded colleagues in a supportive environment as we help end homelessness. Learn more at www.allchicago.org
