The Associate Board is a group of engaged, proactive, professionals who are dedicated to serving homeless and at-risk young people. The Associate Board was created to advance and promote the mission of Covenant House Illinois in the greater Chicagoland area and to advise senior leadership on matters concerning CHIL’s services and relationships with the broader Chicago community. Here’s how our Associate Board members help fight youth homelessness in Chicago.

Fundraising

 

Each member of CHIL’s Associate Board works to raise a minimum of $2,000 annually (January - December). Members can raise this amount by participating in Sleep Out and Associate Board fundraisers, running a race for Covenant House Home Team, personal contributions, employer matching and grants, and in-kind donations.

Sleep Out

 

Members participate in and recruit for Sleep Out, which is a Covenant House signature event, held every year at Covenant House sites across the country.
