We are excited to launch our newsletter, The View from the Boulevard, designed to keep you informed, introduce you to our clients, team and supporters, and help you get involved. You can read the full newsletter here.
Here are some highlights.
The Boulevard’s new CEO. Renita White comes to the Boulevard with more than thirty-five years of leadership experience in major social service organizations in Chicago. A Chicago native who is passionate about serving at-risk populations, Renita is excited to raise the visibility of The Boulevard and its pioneering work in Medical Respite Care.
A Warm Donation. Special thanks to the Reva & David Logan Foundation for its gracious donation of coats and hoodies for Boulevard’s residents, as well as its long-standing support for our program and our clients.
Our people and our stories. Our client Richard is thriving at home and at work as a result of The Boulevard’s support. Volunteer Gary regularly brings groups of students to The Boulevard for our Share-A-Meal program, putting smiles on the faces of appreciative residents. Just a few years ago, Jim was a Boulevard resident. Now, he’s a Board member, bringing his on-the-ground insight into the organization’s strategic decision-making.
A national award, your involvement and more. Link to the newsletter below to read about our recent national award for outstanding medical respite work, find out how to volunteer with the Associate Board, learn about the upcoming Annual Appeal, and hear from our Board Chair.
