Summer Suppers for the Homeless

Name: Alma Kraft

Holy Family Catholic Community and other seasonal PADS sites saw the need to continue to feed the homeless in our neighborhood while PADS is closed throughout the summer months. Hence, the Summer Suppers for the Homeless began at a church in Palatine and quickly grew to others in the area. Offering a nutritious supper most evenings of the month means a lot. It may be the only meal they eat that day.

Holy Family serves once a month on the 4th Monday of each month May – September. We have committed to serve approximately 150 people between PADS guests in the hotels and anyone else hungry looking for a meal.
