Regular outreach at 35 shelter and street programs reaches 7,500 youth and adults yearly. A State Network organizes in 14 communities outside Chicago, focused on Aurora, Rockford, Waukegan, and Will County. A Speakers Bureau reaches a yearly audience of 4,000 and organizes 250+ students to advocate with CCH. The Law Project and its Youth Futures mobile legal aid clinic handle 500 cases a year, about 90% on behalf of homeless students or youth.
