Looking for a way to give back this holiday season? Donate to the Village’s Assist-A-Family Campaign! The Assist-a-Family program, which relies on community donations, includes the Village’s annual winter holiday season gift program and year-round emergency financial assistance.
How it works
During the winter holiday season, the Skokie Health and Human Services (HHS) Department identifies eligible Skokie families and provides them with gift cards for area businesses to purchase food, household necessities and other items specific to their needs.
The year-round Emergency Financial Assistance program assists families who have fallen behind on rent or utility bills due to a hardship.
Monica, a 2022 holiday program recipient, writes, “The gift cards allowed me to purchase winter clothes, coats and household items for my family. The program has helped me and my family so much.”
