Volunteer Guidelines


Want another way to make a difference for a teen experiencing homelessness? Donate a backpack!! 

For families experiencing homelessness, a teenage child is a gift. They often help care for younger siblings, take on part-time jobs to help uplift their family and serve as the glue that keeps their family together.

However, experiencing homelessness can lead to teens' academic performance lagging behind that of their housed peers. Many experience trauma, frequently change school districts and aren't able to attend school regularly. All of these things make learning more difficult.

High schoolers in Nicholas House's housing programs-- many of whom live right here in Grant Park-- need your support to excel in school this coming year.

Will you donate a backpack stuffed with school supplies to ensure that every high schooler in Nicholas House programs starts the year with everything they need to succeed in school?

Sign up to donate a backpack and get details hereBackpacks and loose school supplies should be dropped off at Nicholas House's Grant Park shelter between July 12 and July 23.
