An end to homelessness is only possible with the help of our community. There are so many ways to get involved with the OPHC and help reach our goal of making homelessness in Oak Park rare, brief and one time.


Interested in getting involved with the OPHC and our mission to end homelessness? Volunteer with us by joining a work group, getting trained to speak on behalf of the OPHC or working at a designated Housing Forward shelter. Contact us to learn more.


By donating to the OPHC, you are contributing to an end to homelessness in your community. Your donation will support the OPHC and its mission, as well as benefit people experiencing homelessness in Oak Park. Any amount helps and we thank you for your generous contribution.

Host a Speaker

The OPHC is always looking to share the mission of ending homelessness in Oak Park. If you or your organization, congregation or business is interested in having someone from the Coalition speak on homelessness statistics, recent progress and current goals of the OPHC, contact us to set a date!

Attend an Event

The OPHC meets quarterly to discuss recent progress and current goals of the Coalition. Our next quarterly meeting is January 17th and our annual meeting is set for March 14th. Attending meetings is a great way to stay up to date on the Coalition’s mission. We encourage you to join us at a meeting or one of our other upcoming events!

Join a Work Group

Joining a work group is the best way to get involved with the OPHC. Work groups meet monthly to discuss various strategies to implement a plan of action.

Distribute Resources

If you’ve been looking for a way to help people experiencing homelessness in Oak Park, you can download and distribute shelter information cards or refer people to the EntryPoint website or the Health Connection HUB database.
