CRER Cares parters with Byline Bank

June 17, 2020 | Posted in Stories


CRER Cares in Partnership with Byline Bank delivers 100 meals to St. Francis Hospital in Evanston

This meal delivery would not be possible without the generous donations from Byline Bank in Evanston. Thanks to the recommendation from Byline Bank, CRER Cares purchased the meals from Curt’s Café in Evanston. What a fantastic café and mission to help support. Curt’s Café hires young adults who are living in at-risk situations such as having contact with the judicial system, or are homeless, food insecure or have dropped out of school.

At Curt’s they teach culinary techniques but also provide instruction these youth need to fill in educational gaps, gain confidence, and become job ready. Some teaching is done on café lines, some is done in a classroom setting, and some by individual mentors or outside the café. After training, Curt’s assists employees with job placement, and helps them transition into full-time employment with a minimum of 30 new students per café through the program each year.

A special thank you to CRER Broker Louis Head for making this meal delivery happen!
