Bridging the gap for Southland Residents in Temporary Crisis

Together We Cope is a homelessness prevention agency based in Tinley Park, Illinois.
Since 1982, we have been bridging the gap for southwest suburban residents in temporary crisis by providing food, shelter, clothing and referrals, empowering them to return to self-sufficiency.
     With 200 volunteers, generous community donations of food, clothing and household goods, and groceries from the Greater Chicago Food Depository, TWC serves more than 17,000 clients a year from Bremen, Orland, Worth and Palos.

Of every dollar donated to Together We Cope, 92 cents goes to client programs and services.
Sound fiscal management has earned us four consecutive four-star evaluations from Charity Navigator, a level of recognition granted to only 7 percent of U.S. charities. We also have received a Gold Level rating from GuideStar Exchange.

TWC ‘outperforms most other charities in America’

cn2 logo main373x112

In bridging the gap for south suburban families in crisis, Together We Cope “outperforms most other charities in America,” according to Charity Navigator. The charity evaluator granted the Tinley Park-based homeless prevention agency a four-star rating for the fourth year in a row, commending TWC for sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency.
     “Only 7 percent of the charities we rate have received at least four consecutive four-star evaluations, indicating that Together We Cope outperforms most other charities in America,” wrote Ken Berger, president and CEO of Charity Navigator. “This ‘exceptional’ designation from Charity Navigator differentiates Together We Cope from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust.”
     Kathryn Straniero, executive director of TWC, said the agency is thrilled with the recognition. “Of every dollar donated to Together We Cope, 92 cents goes to programs and services for our clients,” she said. “While the need continues to grow, so does our community support. Our focus on ‘neighbor helping neighbor’ has brought out the best in so many people. This rating from Charity Navigator helps us as we strive to deserve the trust so many have placed in us.”
