Eli’s was pleased to be one of the sponsors for the Lawson House Honors Event on Thursday, November 1st, 2012. The event was honoring a remarkable history of Board Leadership and Support.
Since 1931, Lawson House has provided safe, afforable housing for men and women. Now the largest single-room supportive housing facility in the Midwest, it plays a key role in Chicago’s efforts to address homelessness.
But housing is only half the story. Lawson house also provides an array of free social services, mental health and primary medical care to help residents be independent and self-sufficient. These supportive services have been carefully added over the past 30 years through lasting partnerships with area providers. Through their commitment, Lawson House has emerged as a national model of supportive housing. Their success is based in part on the support and leadership of the Lawson House Board of Directors.
