Past Mission Minutes

Because our believing affects our living, we are committed to making God’s love and justice known in Lakeview and beyond. We partner with a number of ministries locally and globally – both through giving of financial resources and giving of volunteer time. We see ourselves as people of faith who have both the privilege and responsibility to speak for those whose voices are marginalized, so we seek to be a prophetic voice in matters of justice – especially for those living in poverty, violence, or those who are victims of the “isms” of our society (heterosexism & homophobia; racism; sexism; able-ism; ageism; etc.). We see ourselves as people faith who are also meant to partner with God in easing suffering – so we pray that we do that in our efforts to help serve a meal at Lakeview Shelter, to provide a Safe Haven for homeless GLBTQ youth, or by hosting Recovery groups in our space.  In addition, each month Broadway collects donations for a specific organization.

MISSION MINUTES

PROJECT FIERCE

 

Project Fierce is a grassroots collective of radical social workers, youth advocates and other community members who are working together to establish a community driven, identity affirming housing in Chicago. Project Fierce’s mission is to reduce LGBTQ youth homelessness in Chicago by providing transitional housing and support services to homeless LGBTQ young adults. PFC launched publicly in April 2013 and received an overwhelmingly supportive response from queer and allied communities. Last year, PFC announced it has purchased a home on Chicago’s Southwest Side, and they are working on readying the space to house young people. They will provide supportive, collaborative, transitional housing for 10-12 LGBTQ-identified young adults. In an effort to assure sustainability of their space, they also will offer a low cost office rental space in the building for grassroots, social justice focused non-profits seeking a home. One of our members, Jackie Boyd, has been involved in this amazing house raising effort from the start. Visit www.projectfiercechicago.org for more information.

 

CHILDSERV 

 

Childserv began in 1894 as the Methodist Deaconess Orphanage and later was named the Lake Bluff Home for Children. Today, ChildServ is a highly experienced, multidisciplinary child and family services network reaching children and families facing adversity in four Illinois counties: Cook, DuPage, Kane, and Lake. Our community-based programs focus is to improve the lives of vulnerable children and their families, foster parents, and other caregivers. ChildServ reaches 3,000 at-risk children and families annually. Programs include foster care and adoption, group homes, child care, early childhood education and parenting support, military and veteran family support, and healthy life-style information.
