Approach

Target Clients

CUMALI’s services are aimed primarily at chronically homeless individuals living on the streets in downtown Chicago. We focus on those who are receptive to receiving services, and have built a solid reputation among the homeless community.

Service Locations

CUMALI travels to various areas in the Chicago Loop for its outreach work. The CUMALI team focuses on various points along Lower Wacker Drive (on both sides of the river), and by Union Station (300 S Canal Street). CUMALI has a space at the Episcopal Church of Our Saviour at 530 W Fullerton Pkwy in Lincoln Park that it uses to prepare food and store clothes and supplies.

Operations

During its weekly outreach trips, CUMALI operates out of vehicles stocked with food, drinks and various other supplies. The team assesses the needs of those it serves, and tries to accomodate with clothes and other items depending upon the season.
