Respond Now enhances the quality of life in south suburban communities by working to alleviate hunger and prevent homelessness for people at risk.
The 22 communities Respond Now serves in the south suburbs are stricken with the highest levels of poverty and unemployment in all of suburban Chicago. Recent studies show that areas served by Respond Now have food insecurity rates as high as 48%. Foreclosure rates in our service area are some of the highest in all of suburban Cook County.
Many of our clients are working poor with families. Some of our clients have recently been laid off while others live on fixed incomes finding it difficult to make ends meet.
