Where miracles happen:

7045 North Ridgeway Avenue

All the magic happens under one roof. Housed within the Chicago Chesed Fund warehouse is an extensive food pantry, a vast furniture and appliances gemach, shelves stocked with household and medical equipment, and much more. But don’t take our word for it. See for yourself.

Whatever the question,
CCF has the answer.

Chicago Chesed Fund serves as a resource for the Chicago community at large. Whether you’re in need of tables and chairs for an upcoming Simcha, researching therapy options for a struggling child, recently out of a job, or just looking to arrange a meeting with a Shadchan, Chicago Chesed Fund can help in ways far beyond financial assistance.

Whatever the crisis, however desperate the need, Chicago Chesed Fund is committed to helping, providing critical assistance in the form of goods, services and financial support. Sensitivity and the dignity of recipients are the core tenets of their mission.

We’re changing lives…
and so can you

If you could have seen our son’s face when he sat on his new bike, you would undoubtedly know how grateful both he and we, his parents, are! We feel so blessed to be the recipients of your generosity! This is the first new bike this son has ever had.

This past summer I came to the Chicago Chesed Fund to talk about rewriting my resume and helping me to find positions. I was amazed at how professional, knowledgeable and caring these busy women were and am so thankful the CCF has these ladies on board. We are thankful BEYOND for what we’ve gleaned from the CCF.

A belated thank-you for all your help before Yom Tov. The robes were so unbelievable. It really added to their simchas Yom tov and the shirts too were a big help. We appreciate all the hard work that goes into setting up and running the clothing g’mach and really all that the Chicago Chesed Fund offers.

Being that this year is a bit of a struggle financially I had to take advantage of the frozen foods available for yom tov. I was and still am speechless at what was provided for me today. I do not need to purchase ANY meat, chicken and fish (or the other extra treats that were thrown in!) for yom tov. Thank you for helping to ease the financial burden and providing us with menuchas hanefesh.
