With Your Donation, Everything Can Change
DuPagePads has the solution to move people from dependency to self-sufficiency, fear to confidence, the unknown into a future, homelessness into a home.
Seemingly small things we do can add up to great results for our community. At DuPagePads, there are many different opportunities to get involved with to support our mission of ending homelessness.
Our volunteers often find that they are the ones who are inspired and feel they receive far more than they give.
