About The Boulevard of Chicago
For more than 25 years, The Boulevard of Chicago (formerly Interfaith House) has been a recognized leader in the network of organizations working to address the challenges faced by Chicago’s homeless population. The Boulevard is a unique organization, dedicated to helping homeless men and women with medical recovery needs that cannot be appropriately addressed in a shelter environment. We provide program participants with medical respite care, interim housing, a wide variety of support services, and help obtain stable housing. We believe there is a direct link between stable medical and mental health, and stable housing.
