IN THE NEWS
New Life Shelter Renovation Helps At-Risk Youth, Families and Homeless in Chicago
They were in desperate need. After operating out of a 1920s auto repair building for 30 years, New Life Interim Housing Shelter put out a call for help.
Businesses and donors responded, including TW Chicago. When serving our clients, it’s a partnership. Their goals are our priority, and we collaborate to achieve their success. When it comes to our community, we do the same.
New Life’s impact on our community is measurable. The 37-bed facility has helped thousands of people by providing families in need with
temporary shelter. To further help them get back on their feet, it offers social services such as children’s after-school programs, counseling,
transitional housing, and job training. In 2021, during the pandemic and with limited capacity, it served over 1,000 people facing hardship.
New Life’s impact is also immeasurable. Feeding a hungry family. Providing a bed to a homeless mother and child. These building blocks
help restore dignity, self-worth, and hope. It has an immeasurable and positive impact today, on future generations, and on our community.
“The pandemic has helped us all appreciate the value of critical support services. We are honored to aid in the shelter’s mission to transform people’s lives.”
A building that repaired cars, now repairs lives
The garage on Paulina Street served as an auto repair for decades. Now, it helps get people’s lives on the road to long-term success. The building had seen better days, however, and it was in desperate need of modern upgrades.
It lacked interior walls, contributing to it being cold in the winter and hot in the summer. Not all bathrooms were functioning, and the space did not allow privacy, with beds, offices, and dining areas all sharing space in the main shelter room. The new renovation will include:
- Electrical wiring and plumbing
- Air conditioning
- Upgraded Bathrooms
- Kitchen and lounge area
- Playroom for kids
- Counseling, training, and computer area
- New beds, dining tables, and furniture
- Expandable walls for privacy
- Double door secure entrance
These improvements will provide a safe and healthy facility where families can work on their next steps to achieve permanent housing and
receive transformative help for stability and success.
Spreading the Good News
Since 1991, the nonprofit Good News Partners has operated the New Life Interim Housing Shelter. The shelter is part of the Good News Partners’ housing facilities aimed at ending homelessness and hopelessness by guiding families through the transition from being homelessness to permanent housing.
TW Chicago has worked with Good News Partners on their renovation plans for the shelter, and we are providing project and construction
services. Generous donors and volunteers have also aided in offsetting construction costs. But the project has experienced the rising cost of
materials and supplies, which has increased overall cost and delayed construction.
In April, Rep. Jan Schakowsky notified Good News Partners that they were selected to receive $450,000 from the federal government’s
community funding program. By securing this funding, the shelter was able to cover its $900,000 budget and move forward with the project.
Be a Champion for Families and Children in Chicago On June 3, 2022, demolition at the shelter began. Construction will soon be underway and is expected to be complete in 3-5 months. Funds are still needed to cover items such as furniture and unanticipated expenses. How can you help?
