Who We Help

Our Back to School program provides students with school supplies and backpacks.

Together We Cope helps families in 27 communities in Bremen, Palos, Orland and Worth townships, bridging the gap in a number of ways to help them return to self-sufficiency. By enabling our neighbors to stay in their homes during a temporary financial crisis, it makes the community stronger for all of us.

• recently unemployed workers
• elderly and disabled people on fixed incomes
• grandparents unexpectedly raising children again
• victims of fire and other disasters
• single parents trying to make ends meet
• people facing catastrophic medical expenses
• underemployed workers without benefits
