Double Dollars is Back!

DOUBLE DOLLARS DURING DECEMBER

This year is a special milestone at CP – our 20th anniversary! Literally thousands of homeless adults (and now families!) have secured employment and housing, and achieved a multitude of other life-changing milestones during the last two decades. We are eternally grateful to every donor and volunteer who has helped support us and our mission throughout the past 20 years.

One of our most anticipated holiday traditions in recent years has been our Double Dollars campaign. There is still time to see your end-of-year donation doubled. And our current match goal has increased to $102,022! Can you help us reach this goal?

Gifts received or post marked by December 31, 2020 are eligible to be matched. Donate online, by mail, or even by phone!

Phone: Call Patti at 815-964-4105 ext. 216

Mail: Send directly to Carpenter’s Place
Carpenter’s Place

Online: Donate securely by clicking the button below.


Gifts may be given in honor of or in memory of a loved one. Recognition cards provided. In order for the donation to be doubled, it must be received by December 31, 2020.

Your donation will make a difference in the lives of many!

The following milestones were achieved from November 1, 2019 through October 31, 2020:

• 185 homeless men and women in our case management program obtained housing
• 99 women and men in our program secured employment; 83 full-time!

Our Family Services Program continued to make a significant impact during 2020!

• 21 families obtained housing. 22 adults and 42 children now have a place to call home
• 19 heads of households secured employment; 11 full-time!

Each number is a person… a human being who deserves respect and dignity. No matter what brings a person to Carpenter’s Place, the door is open and they are welcome. With a case manager, each person makes a plan with goals, action steps and a time line; all with consistent accountability. It is a rigorous process. The numbers above show that it’s working. Please help us continue our work.

Donate today and see how great it feels to help homeless adults and children in our community this holiday season.
