JANUARY MISSION OF THE MONTH: WORLD RELIEF

 

World Relief’s mission is to empower the local church to serve the most vulnerable.

Today, there are over 80 million people around the globe who have been forced, or made the painful choice, to leave their home. After years of fleeing violence, famine and extreme poverty, their greatest hope is that they’ll find a safe place to rebuild their lives and call home.

Sadly, this hope remains unattainable for many of our immigrant neighbors who feel marginalized, lonely and afraid. Rather than finding opportunities to flourish, many are losing hope as they struggle to overcome unexpected vulnerabilities and systemic barriers to integration.

You Can Help Make a Difference
If you’re like us, this breaks your heart. And you want to know what you can do to help. Here’s the good news. When you join us today, you can. At World Relief, we’ve welcomed, advocated for, and helped integrate over 400,000 immigrants in vulnerable situations to communities all across our nation. And we’ve done so with the help of bold and compassionate women and men just like you.

FEBRUARY MISSION OF THE MONTH: DUPAGE PADS

 

Mission is to End Homelessness in DuPage County.

DuPagePads is so much more than a pad on the floor. DuPagePads is about the journey home. It’s about the journey from dependency to self-sufficiency. Not the shelter. Not the nights spent in a car, in a motel room or on the street. DuPagePads is a journey that begins with an extended hand, an affirming voice, and a trusting soul that will advocate undividedly for each individual.

The solution to end homelessness. Starts with housing. The solution to end homelessness is more complex than providing individuals with food and shelter. Founded in 1985, DuPagePads is the largest provider of interim and permanent housing, coupled with support services in order to help individuals work toward becoming self-sufficient. These vital support services enable the individuals we help to receive case management and life coaching, employment support such as job coaching, as well as engagement with employers—effectively stopping the cycle of homelessness.

DuPagePads IS the solution to end homelessness—because when someone believes in you, everything can change.

MARCH MISSION OF THE MONTH: MARKLUND

VISION A happy, safe, purpose-filled life for every individual with intellectual and developmental disabilities

Marklund is a nonprofit organization that serves infants, children, teens and adults with severe and profound developmental disabilities and special healthcare needs.
At Marklund, everything we do begins with caring for each and every child or adult with the same care we would want for our own family members. Many of our residents and community clients are non-ambulatory and have severe cognitive deficits due to genetic disorders or complications during pregnancy and delivery. Others acquired disabilities during infancy or childhood through tragic accidents. Many have complex medical problems that require 24-hour skilled nursing care.

The story of Marklund is one of unconditional love, selflessness and hope. Marklund was founded when Claire Haverkampf, RN, began to provide foster care to Mark William Lund, a little boy born with Down Syndrome and severe cardiac complications. Five days after his birth on December 21, 1954, at Elmhurst Hospital, Mark William Lund came to live with Claire and her husband Stan and their two children in their Northlake home. Here, Mark was cared for as a member of the family.

Word of the Haverkampf’s selflessness spread and soon they opened their expanded home to more children with developmental disabilities. As the “family” grew, so did their need for physical space. They moved to a larger home in Bloomingdale where Marklund was formed.

The Haverkampfs were visionaries. They saw the real need for a place where infants, children and adults with developmental disabilities could find a full life experience.

In October, 2016, Marklund acquired the Little Angels Center for Exceptional Care organization in Elgin. The two centers shared similar histories, with Little Angels being founded in 1958 by Pat and Bob Wasmond.
