Chapter Charity

The IAEE Midwestern Chapter chose Sarah's Circle as our Chapter Charity. 

Sarah's Circle is a non-profit organization with a mission of serving women who are homeless or in need of a safe space. Located in Chicago's Uptown Community, Sarah's Circle has provided support for thousands of women since 1979.

Today Sarah's Circle has a Daytime Support Center open to any woman in need, a 50-bed interim housing (shelter) program for women who are currently homeless, and permanent supportive housing for women who have a disabling condition and have been chronically homeless. Across programs, Sarah's Circle staff use best practices and provide case management and supportive counseling to help women achieve their goals.

The programs have three overarching goals:

  1. Welcome all women with safety, respect, and community.
  2. Support women's growth in all aspects of wellness: physical, emotional, life skills, economic, and realizing their unique potential.
  3. Help each woman find her home.
