Community Conversations

Community Conversations, a new series exploring mission through many and varied lenses, premiered in December, 2020. This virtual event entitled “Let’s Talk About Homelessness” featured representatives from three Chicago agencies in a conversation about the clients they serve and the ways in which they serve them.  

While our Mission funds provide financial support to each of these organizations each year, our aim now is to come to a deeper understanding of these mission partners, the clients they serve and the ways in which they serve.  

We are grateful to the leaders of each of these organizations for joining us in this conversation:

Tonya Rice, Board Chair, Chicago HOPES for Kids

Rev. Brittany Caine-Conley, Congregational Engagement Manager, The Night Ministry

Renita White, CEO, The Boulevard

We invite you to read about each of these organizations by following the links to their websites.

We anticipate hosting Community Conversations throughout the year, so stay tuned for news about our next event. In the meantime, should you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Kathy Wennerstrum or Janet Andersen.
