As the colder months approach, so does the holiday season. The holidays are a time for celebrating and also a time of giving. After the crazy year that 2020 has been, giving back to your local community is one of the best ways we can support one another. Here are some wonderful Naperville nonprofits that you can support right from the comfort of our apartments in Naperville:
Angels on Wheels Animal Rescue
Founded in 2009, Angels on Wheels is an animal rescue organization that rescues animals from high-intake shelters and places them in foster homes until they can find a “forever home”. They are a no-kill shelter, so they do not euthanize animals unless absolutely necessary for medical reasons. Their foster network keeps rescued animals for as long as it takes until the animal is adopted. Animal rescue is incredibly important across the nation, so the work that Angels on Wheels does is invaluable.

Bernard Coffey Veteran’s Foundation
Bernard Coffey, a Navy veteran, founded this nonprofit with the mission of providing support to veterans and their families. The organization works to provide housing resources and also mental health resources to help those that have served our country. Every year, they hold the Naperville Veteran’s Ball as a way to celebrate veterans and their families.

Youth Outlook began in 1996 as the first social service agency in all of Illinois to provide support solely for LGBTQ+ youth. They provide resources for LGBTQ+ youth, as well as support groups for parents of LGBTQ+ children and community education. The programs create safe spaces for a vulnerable part of the population and have helped thousands of young people in the LGBTQ+ community.
