Thank you for joining us at the 2019 Faces of Hope Benefit  to celebrate and support the legacy of Chicago’s historic community resource. 

Association House honored Adtalem Global Education with the Spirit of Hope award. For a decade of our century-plus legacy, Adtalem has supported Association House in a shared commitment to the well-being of the individuals we serve.

The award was created in the spirit of Ellen Holt, Association House of Chicago’s foundress, Ms. Ellen Holt, who first described our organizational goal as, “To so touch by deed or words the life of everyone who enters its doorway, so that each shall feel the power of a better life, and shall know their purpose”.  Ellen’s words have been our resounding mission – and have become our “Spirit of Hope” – in dedication to service for the community we dutifully serve.

The Spirit of Hope award honors those the supporters and partners, both corporate and civic, who help to move our mission forward.  It embodies the dedication of vested partners who work with Association House to advance health & wellness, educational and economic opportunity for thousands of community participants all over the Chicagoland area.

Thank you to our 2019 sponsors
