Description

Join us for a unique volunteering opportunity to cook and serve dinner to individuals and families affected by homelessness and poverty in Chicago.

Inspiration Cafe was founded in 1989 by Lisa Nigro, a Chicago police officer who began searching for a personal response to the homelessness she encountered in Uptown. She began by loading up a red wagon with sandwiches and coffee to distribute to homeless individuals on the streets. Today, the Cafe is still the heart and soul of the thriving organization, which has grown up around it. Inspiration Cafe provides restaurant-style meals to homeless or poor men, women and families in a therapeutic community that promotes dignity and respect. The Cafe is open only to participants in Inspiration Corporation's programs, all of whom are working on stability by increasing income and/or becoming permanently and stably housed.

Dress code is casual (jeans are OK), but please wear closed-toed shoes and a ball cap (unless you'd rather sport a stylish hairnet!)
