The annual Moving Forward Together Celebration

TUESDAY, October 7, 2014

Veterans sacrificed to protect us—now it’s our turn to stand up.

Please join Mercy Housing Lakefront and Mercy Portfolio Services for a fundraising and networking celebration featuring an energetic musical performance by The Soul Children of Chicago, and honoring Rico Roman, decorated veteran and gold-medal winning paralympic athlete.

Your support will help further the ten-year goals of the Moving Forward Together Campaign to build or preserve 7,500 affordable homes and prevent homelessness for 20,000 Veterans, children and families impacted by the foreclosure and housing crisis.
