Support Skokie Families in Need

Gift cards on display

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.

Real impact 

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.”

How to donate 

There are three easy ways to donate: 

  • Donate online
  • Send a check made payable to the Village of Skokie, with "Skokie Assist-A-Family Program" noted on the memo line. Mail checks to: Village of Skokie, Health and Human Services Department, 5127 Oakton Street, Skokie, Illinois, 60077
