Volunteers Packing Food

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 was held by mail during February 2021, sadly, due to the pandemic. 

This annual event is always our biggest fundraiser of each year.  We are so grateful to all of our generous SPONSORS and wonderful donors.  This benefit continues to make it possible for us to provide for our 11 families as they work toward self-sufficiency.

Please check back as to the status of our 2022 Benefit.
