Dylan may not know he’s homeless, in fact he’s a very happy 21 month old little boy, he stays at our Emergency Overnight Shelter with his Mom and Dad on 809 Cedar Street in Rockford Illinois. We have actually renovated our shelter to better serve families and children who are homeless an increasing demographic in our area of people in need.
On October 25, 2008 we will be having a Ribbon Cutting to open our newly renovated part of the shelter for children and families. On that day as well there will be a clean-up day where people can volunteer to clean up the shelter and the grounds surrounding it.
