to Interfaith Housing Center

The Interfaith Housing Center of the Northern Suburbs accepted the 2003 Community Service Award from the Evanston/North Shore NAACP at its 39th Annual Freedom Fund Banquet which took place on November 8th at the Doubletree Hotel in Skokie. Over 250 people attended the NAACP event, including the mayors of Evanston and Skokie. Judge William Cousins, Jr. and Rep. Jesse L. Jackson, Jr. provided keynote addresses on the importance of maintaining vigilance for civil rights and racial justice in America.

Gail Schechter, Executive Director, Alisú Schoua-Glusberg, President, and Saralynne Crittenden, Board member, accepted the Community Service award on behalf of Interfaith, presented “in grateful appreciation of your constant support and willing dedication to serving the needs of others through fair and affordable housing.”

The Interfaith Housing Center of the Northern Suburbs is a 31-year-old not-for-profit organization that works with others to promote integrated, just communities through the investigation of housing discrimination, predatory lending, and landlord/tenant complaints, affordable housing education and advocacy, and the facilitation of housing matches through Homesharing.

Interfaith is proud and honored by this recognition from the NAACP, one of the oldest and most respected civil rights organizations in the nation.
