Join us as we gather at one of Chicago‘s most stunning landmarks to celebrate the mission, ministries, and friends of Bishop Anderson House.

This year, we are honored to celebrate and champion the work of our two friends and advocates, Dr. Kimberly Joseph, FACS and The Rev. Carol Reese, LCSW. Their work at Stroger Cook County Hospital Trauma Unit has been a critical piece of healing in the face of Chicago violence. For that, and for their tireless efforts to bring chaplaincy to Stroger patients and families in the form of the BAH Chaplain Fellowship, we applaud our 2017 Volunteers of the Year.

Your support sustains our transformative ministries:
– Providing Chaplains Where They Are Most Needed.
– Training All People to Provide Basic Spiritual Care.
– Nourishing Caregivers with Support and Compassion.

For more information about the event, visit our website at www.BishopAndersonHouse.org, call us at 312.563.4825, or email Director of Development Becky Duggan at bduggan@bishopandersonhouse.org
