For our November 8th business meeting, CALL’s Community Service Committee will collect donations to benefit Chicago’s A Safe Haven, http://www.asafehaven.org/veterans/, which offers veterans housing based on individual need, assessment, and eligibility, and supportive services. The goal of A Safe Haven is “to achieve successful reintegration into the community, sustainable self-sufficiency and permanent independent affordable housing, with pride and purpose restored.”

You also can make a monetary contribution online at http://www.asafehaven.org/donate/.
