Resources for Every Chicagoan Under the Sun

In September of 1988, my freshman year of high school, I was introduced to the term, "Information Superhighway." Back then, it was promised that by the year 2000, everyone would have access to electronic communication and paper would prove to be obsolete. Yet today, in a time of turmoil, I am coming across several sects of Chicagoans that, for whatever reason, don't have access to some life-saving resources and many continue to fall through the cracks. Who, you might ask, could possibly not have internet access in this day and age? Senior citizens, homeless individuals, those with mental illness or substance abuse issues, and people who just can't afford it.

During COVID, some people made masks, some donated N95s, and others donated money to various causes. For giving Tuesday, I offer information. Following are lists of various services: shelters, food pantries, warming centers, basic computer classes, addiction services and mental health services.

As the information was collected with COVID restrictions in mind, I did not include organizations that state that they are not available at this time for walk-ins and phone intakes. Inclusion of any resources are not intended as an endorsement and no money was exchanged for advertisement.

If you are reading this, you too can help and here's how:

Print some or all of the information and leave some copies where people who have no internet can get it: police stations, emergency rooms, senior centers. I have been carrying packets around in individual bags with masks in them. When someone approaches me for money, I hand that person this resource.

When I was a child, I was asked yearly in Hebrew School for five dollars to send to Israel to plant a tree in my name. I'm pretty sure I have a forest in my name somewhere in the promised land. Of course I would love to save a tree. But, at a time when inequities are being discovered every day, I say, marginalized Chicagoans deserve more consideration.

In this crazy, mixed up world, it is scary in my warm, privileged bubble. But that doesn't mean there are not people freezing out there. I have friends to Zoom with and money to buy toilet paper when I need it. Not everyone is so fortunate.

So I present to you the official "Sunshine Pages." Feel free to print, copy, paste, post. No copyright or pride attached to this. If this information can help someone, by all means, share.

Take care of yourselves and your loved ones.

At a time when, as a city, as a state, as a nation, as a world, we are facing with unprecedented hardships, hope is so fragile and seems so out of reach.

It is hard to find faith when even COVID doesn’t make the issues we struggled with before 2020 go away.

Hear this: YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

About COVID

COVID-19, or Corona Virus, is a strain of SARS that originated in China late last year. Since then, the virus has hit every city, every state and most countries of the world.

The symptoms look like a common cold or a flu, but also include a fever of over 100 degrees and loss of taste and smell. You can get tested at many pharmacies and every hospital.

How do you prevent contracting COVID? Think of it this way:

“I need COVID like I need a hole in my head.”

Like many strains of the flu, COVID finds it way through the holes in your head: eyes, mouth, nose and ears. Because of this, you want to protect your head as much as you can:

Wear a clean mask that covers your mouth and nose. Protect your eyes with glasses. Some people wear goggles or face shields. If you can’t afford that and don’t wear glasses already, many pharmacies sell something called “cheaters” – inexpensive glasses that are not prescription but may have a tiny bit of magnification.

Most indoor establishments require face masks and ask that you keep six feet of distance between yourself and others. Six feet separation helps protect you from people’s germs when they sneeze, cough, or even yawn.

Staying away from crowds is especially important. Staying away from people with colds or flus is crucial.

If you, yourself are sick – stay home. If home is not an option, below is a list of shelters. Make sure to tell the intake person if you have any symptoms, are waiting for results from a COVID test or have been around someone who is sick or tested positive.

Many people recover from COVID. If you have other issues affecting your immune system – like diabetes, lung dysfunction, obesity, recently receiving chemotherapy, dialysis, radiation, a transplant, your risk for severe consequences from COVID is higher.

While many people may have access to internet, we forget that not everyone does. Whether you can go online or not, you deserve help just like everyone else does. There is help out there. Below is a list of some of the agencies and programs available to help you now.

Shelters

Lacking a consistent or safe place to live or experiencing homelessness can make some elements of the COVID-19 outbreak especially difficult.

If you don’t have consistent or safe housing, it may be more difficult for you to self-quarantine or shelter in place. Some living situations can also make it harder to access the resources you need to maintain your hygiene and protect your physical and mental health.

Warming Centers

Warming centers are available in state facilities across Illinois to help Illinois residents reduce their home heating costs. These facilities are a safe, warm place to go during the day while you turn your thermostat down (do not lower your thermostat below 60 degrees). To complement the state effort, mayors statewide have been asked to provide local warming centers in their communities.

Warming center hours vary by location and are limited to each facilities' regular business hours. Except for Tollway Oases, warming centers do not offer food, drinks or other amenities.
