There are approximately 125,000 homeless people in the Chicago area—and about 40% are women. Helping Women Period—Chicago is more than simply providing feminine products—we are creating a way for homeless and low-income women to stay healthy and maintain the dignity they deserve.

It doesn’t take much to make a difference—we have determined that $35 is what it takes to sponsor one woman for an entire year—although if you’re able to do more, we’d certainly appreciate it. All donations are tax deductible.  Check out our donation levels below.


· Period Pledge—One Woman for One Year: $35

$35 will give one woman enough supplies for a full year

· Period Pledge—Three Women for One Year:     $105

For a little over $100 you can adopt a room at a shelter and keep three women comfortable and safe for a full year

· Adopt A Shelter: $250/$500/$1,000

If you have a bit more to give, consider adopting a shelter for three months, six months, or a year.

· Other Donation

No donation amount is too great or too small—we’re appreciative of anything you’re willing to give.
