We are pleased to announce the Grand Opening of our newest residence, The Shawn Feeley Alpha House!
We opened the newly remodeled, classic Chicago greystone building at 1236 S. Sawyer on Saturday December 15th, 2012. The Shawn Feeley Alpha House will provide housing for homeless Veterans in the North Lawndale neighborhood. Former service men and women residing in this house will have the oportunity to take advantage of on-site case management, support services and a beautiful residence to help them get back on their feet!
The opening ceremony was a huge success. Many EdgeAlliance supporters, including the Feeley family participated in this special day. Check out our Facebook page for more information about the event, photos of the house and reactions from the EdgeAlliance community!
