For over 31 years San Jose Obrero Mission has made a transformational impact in the lives of many individuals without a place to call home, restoring their dignity and giving them hope.
Your commitment and enthusiasm has made us who we are today--Chicago’s only interim Hispanic housing shelter serving the Pilsen and Little Village communities.
Your generous support allows our dedicated and determined work to break the cycle of homelessness.
Join us to enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, followed by 3-course dinner, a special presentation recognizing our honorees, festive music and our ever-popular silent auction.
