In addition to monetary support, your donations of necessary items (gifts in-kind) provide our residents resources to turn housing into home. When you donate items to Inner Voice, you facilitate independence and well-being for people in Chicago who have experienced homelessness and are working towards a better life.

We use Amazon Wishlists, so there’s no guessing needed on your part: we upload a list of what’s needed, and generous supporters like you know exactly how best to help.
