What is
Families Helping Families?

FHF provides apartments and volunteer mentors to homeless families in DuPage County while they are working to reclaim their lives through education. A donation of only $35 will pay one day’s rent and utilities for a family. FHF has NO administrative expenses, so every dollar we raise is a dollar that helps the homeless.

Some people believe that homelessness is self-induced or somehow that the family is at fault. Those who have had the opportunity to get to know homeless families have discovered that sometimes people are working as hard as they can, and still cannot afford a place to live. While the circumstances surrounding each family’s housing crisis is different, there is one universal truth: These parents are deeply concerned about their children and truly believe that they can, with our help, provide a better life for them.

"No Dinner" Benefit 2021

Our 14th Annual Benefit Dinner and Auctions will not be held as planned on Saturday, February 6, 2021, sadly, due to the pandemic. 

This annual event is our biggest fundraiser of each year.  We are so grateful to all of our generous SPONSORS and wonderful donors.  This year we will instead hold a "No-Dinner" Benefit!  This benefit will continue to make it possible for us to provide for our 10 families as they work toward self-sufficiency.

Please download and print our INVITATION and RESPONSE CARD to the "No-Dinner" Benefit.  We look forward to hearing from you!
