"The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members, a heart of grace, and a soul generated by love."
~ Coretta Scott King
Whether it is through our firm or individual support "paying it forward" has been a practice many employees at Chicago Oakbrook Financial Group believe in. The power to bring positive energy, kindness and support for people in need can be gratifying on many levels. Below are a few local organizations we support.
Bridge Communities is a dynamic, grassroots, non-profit organization committed to transforming the lives of homeless families through partnering with talented, resourceful individuals and groups in our community. Our program of housing, mentoring, and empowering families focuses on moving them towards a goal of self-sufficiency.
For over 40 years Beyond Hunger has created solutions to end hunger at every stage of life through comprehensive programs that now include: providing emergency food to families in need, summer meals for kids who lack them when school is out, connecting individuals to valuable benefits like SNAP (“food stamps”), conducting nutrition education and cooking classes to combat chronic illness, and delivering groceries to homebound older adults. Organization-wide, we focus on health and nutrition, and provide food that nourishes and sustains that families love.
