My name is Lorna Bennett. I am a Grassroots Leader and Outreach Assistant with Chicago Coalition for the Homeless. As someone with lived experience of homelessness, a mother of four beautiful sons, and a woman of God, I am a firm believer in the power to fight for change at the grassroots level and win! I have committed a lot of time to serving the community at many different levels including being a direct service provider. Currently, I am studying as an undergrad at Dominican University for my master's degree in Social Work. Amplifying the voices of others like me and empowering others to realize the life they envision for themselves is my passion, my purpose, and my honor.
