Hesed House's mission is to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, shelter the homeless and give people the chance to hope again.
Hesed House is a national model for ending homelessness – one person, one family at a time. It is the culmination of nearly three decades of strategic evolution from a formerly acceptable model of "eats and sheets" to a Comprehensive Homeless Resource Center – a campus of centralized highly skilled professionals collaborating to provide the tools necessary to help individuals and families break free of the shackles binding them to homelessness.
How You Can Help
Whether you choose to lend your time and talents by volunteering, writing a check, planning a fundraising event or coordinating a collection of food, holiday toys, and warm winter clothes, ALL demonstrations of support are appreciated.

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year!”
This sentiment is shared by billions of people of all nationalities and creeds throughout the world. At its very core, it speaks about the power of giving and sharing, the importance of community and faith and the idea that it is more blessed to give than to receive. It is a time when many celebrate God’s special gift to the world in the image of a child lying in a manger, and with grateful hearts, find various ways to “pay it forward.”

Gerald Auto Group Helps Hesed Score Big with the Blackhawks
Hesed House recently received word that the Gerald Auto Group will, once again, proudly serve as the naming sponsor for the fourth annual Kentucky Derby Gala. And in making the announcement, Doug Gerald had a very creative way to help reach – or surpass – that sponsorship goal. Doug said, that “while it would certainly be okay to just write a check for the sponsorship, we felt that there was a more impactful way to support the work at Hesed House and increase the awareness of homelessness in our communities.”
The Gerald Auto Group teamed up with the Chicago Blackhawks through the “Goals for Charity” program presented by WGN Radio that takes advantage of the Hawks’ aptitude for scoring goals. Every time the Blackhawks score a goal, a $100 donation will be made to Hesed House by the Gerald Auto Group.
