Help Us Rebuild After Vandalism

Recently, Matthew House Chicago suffered a devastating act of vandalism, leaving our facility in crisis. Thieves broke in, stripping all electrical copper wiring, leaving us without light, internet, heat, and essential services.

In this challenging time, we turn to you, our valued supporters, for help. A GoFundMe campaign has been launched to raise funds for urgent repairs. Your contribution, no matter the size, will make a meaningful difference in restoring our operations and aiding those in need.

Your generosity will not only repair the damage but also restore the security and support our community relies on. Together, we can overcome this adversity and emerge stronger.
