Please consider participating in the 2016 Skokie Assist-A-Family Program. There are many Skokie residents who, throughout the year, struggle with unemployment, underemployment, medical crisis and more. This year, 62 percent of the families who will receive holiday assistance are headed by a single parent or grandparent. Nearly 30 percent of these hard-working families are headed by individuals who work full time, and some work multiple jobs. Nearly 10 percent of the families include a disabled adult or child, or a senior citizen. Thank you to all who have already supported the program. The Village's Human Services Division will continue to lend support to Skokie residents in need throughout the coming year. READ MORE >>>
