Our Mission

LPCS brings communities together to empower individuals facing homelessness and poverty to secure stable housing and make sustainable life changes.

About Taste of Fall 2021

Taste of Fall (ToF) is LPCS's annual, and always highly-anticipated, fall fundraiser. The purpose of this event has always been two-fold: to bring our community together to support our mission, and to highlight and support Chicago food and beverage establishments.

Taste of Fall will directly support LPCS's Programs & Services:

  • Community Engagement Program (weekly street outreach)
  • Interim Housing Community (shelters located in Lincoln Park & Old Town)
  • On-Track Program (individualized case management focused on housing, health, recovery, employment and support)
  • Permanent Supportive Housing (independent housing)
  • Graduate Community (support for shelter graduates)

To learn more about sponsorships, please contact Lexi Gallopoulos, Donor Relations Manager, at Lexi@lpcschicago.org or at 773-549-6111 ext. 220. 


Taste of Fall (ToF) will take place virtually on Thursday, October 21st from 7-8PM CST. 

Although we won't be together in-person, we do have some tricks up our sleeve to make sure Taste of Fall entertains and truly shows what a magical place LPCS is! Our program will include LPCS Graduate and Guest stories, a bit of cooking, and we're excited to welcome the magician, Paul Draper, to our virtual stage!

Of course Taste of Fall wouldn't be possible without our sponsors, including our Presenting Sponsors, Jenner & Block LLP and Slalom - thank you!
