It takes a village to launch a housing project, so we are excited about your interest! We understand that community members have many different strengths and different levels of time and resources to contribute. Below is more information about some of the ways to get involved in Project Fierce Chicago:
Collective Leadership Board
The Project Fierce Chicago Collective Leadership Board is a small group of dedicated individuals who further the mission of the organization through the following: oversee all aspects of the organization (financial, programmatic, and human resources), secure sustainable community and philanthropic support, remain accountable to the young people and communities we seek to serve, and be an ambassador for PFC. We are currently looking for new board members, specifically people who have the following skills and experiences: Program Development & Evaluation, Accounting/Nonprofit Financial Management, Legal Services/Law, Fundraising, Communications/Public Relations, Graphic & Web Design, and Real Estate and/or Property Management If you are interested in joining the Board, please email PFCVolunteering@gmail.com to find out more information and to get an application.
Sustainers (or Sustaining Members) are crucial to the success of the project! Members donate to the project each month and are welcome to attend our quarterly meetings. These donations ensure that we are able to continue operating and fund expenses such as food, utilities and security for the home.
If you’d like to become a sustaining member, click the Donate Now button below to get started. Not quite ready to subscribe to monthly donations? You can also make a one-time donation by clicking the Support Us button at the bottom of the page. When prompted, click Donate then Make a One-Time Donation.

We love our volunteers, and would not be able to do this work without you. Volunteers do everything from organizing fundraisers and creating social media to cleaning the house monthly, collecting donations, and compiling research. We ask that all volunteers are able to make at least a 6 month commitment to supporting Project Fierce Chicago’s mission. All volunteers must also complete a mandatory, half-day training. We promise it’s fun! There are 4 trainings throughout the year.
If you are interested in volunteering, please send a note to PFCVolunteering@gmail.com.
If you are a group of students or peers who are interested in volunteering at a one-time event, making an in-kind donation, or would like to host an event or fundraiser for/with us, please email ProjectFierceChicago@gmail.com.
