**NEWS: So far this year (as of 10-31-2011) we've gotten 102 persons into housing - that more than last year and the year isn't over yet!*** Franciscan Outreach Association provides direct services to the homeless and poor of Chicago. We operate a soup kitchen, overnight shelter, and case management services program for anyone in need. Our goal is to provide the basic emergency services that help a person survive from day to day and then to assist them in creating a better life for themselves. Our case managers help our guests identify needs, set goals, establish priorities, find service providers, and access services. In 2010, we provided over 85,087 shelter nights, nearly 200,000 meals, an estimated 42,800 showers, and washed 1,736 bags of laundry for the homeless. Our case managers had 8,503 meetings with 1,349 different clients who were working to build better lives for themselves.
