Sarah’s Circle’s 29th Annual Winter Walk: a Mile in Her Shoes

Winter Walk: a Mile in Her Shoes highlights the harsh reality of women’s homelessness during the deadly cold of Chicago’s winters. Your support can make the difference between a woman struggling to survive alone on the street and a woman who is safe and warm in her own bed.

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to wreak havoc on society, especially those most vulnerable. We are anticipating a greater demand for our services as evictions and lay-offs continue. Funds raised through Winter Walk are critical in meeting the demand of Sarah’s Circle’s services.

You can help by signing up to fundraise or by making a donation.
