A New Home for Sarah's Circle

Furnished Apartments for Women in Need

Construction of Sarah’s Circle’s new building at 4836 N. Sheridan is going strong. We have been very fortunate to have such reasonably good weather this winter making it possible for construction to continue unimpeded during a time of year when outside work could have been much more challenging.  

An essential part of our new building is the 10 units of permanent housing specifically for 10 of the most vulnerable women in our program—women  who have been chronically homeless with a disability and  who would have the most difficulty maintaining housing without supportive services.

The framing and all the conduit work has been done in the apartments, and we are excited about moving women in at the end of summer. We are specifically in need of furniture for the apartments. It will cost Sarah’s Circle approximately $2,400 to furnish each apartment:

A breakdown of the cost of specific furniture items follows:

Tapered leg table: $310.78

Bistro Side Chair: $110.94

Twin Bed: $245.18

Twin Box Spring: $186.96

Twin Mattress: $220.58

4 Drawer Bureau: $384.58

Upholstered Chairs: $752.76

Would you consider making a contribution to help us furnish these apartments for 10 very deserving women?

Thank you so much for your support!
