Welcome to Deborah’s Place
Bethany was an international student with a full sports scholarship to one of the nation’s top universities. She was on her way to a bright future. But when she suffered a sports injury she needed to take time off from school to address mental health issues. However, after graduating from her treatment she realized she had no place to go. She was homeless.

Special thanks to Pauline and Rae Magnani for sharing their stories.
For the past 27 years, Deborah’s Place has worked to break the cycle of homelessness through compassionate, innovative, and award-winning programs. Our dedicated volunteers and staff support women through their journeys from homelessness to permanent supportive housing with comprehensive services.
Women are especially vulnerable to the factors that contribute to homelessness – factors like chronic poverty, a rapidly changing housing market, illness, and addiction. This year in Chicago more than 12,000 women will experience the devastating effects of homelessness.
Your involvement helps the women of Deborah’s Place achieve their goals of stable housing, sustainable income, and greater self-determination. Thank you for your support.
