Speak Up in Illinois

More Voices for Supportive Housing

IL Speak Up

The inaugural class of the CSH Speak Up program in Illinois, ready to carry the message that supportive housing works!

Twelve new supportive housing advocates will graduate this Saturday from the inaugural class of the CSH Illinois Speak Up program. Speak Up is a CSH initiative operating in California, and now Illinois, designed to give formerly homeless individuals in supportive housing access to public platforms so they can tell their personal "before and after" stories. Speak Up advocates who graduate our program are prepared to discuss the transformative power of supportive housing before state legislators, Congresspeople, foundations, business organizations and other policymakers. An excellent behinds-the-scene look at Speak Up in Illinois appeared last month in a magazine published by Roosevelt University in Chicago. Roosevelt graduate Archy Jamjun shares his experience working with our advocates in the article "Telling the Tale" (p42) authored by Laura Janota.
