At this year’s Taste of Hope event in late February, DuPagePads once again proved the power of a community that believes everyone deserves a safe place to sleep and a way to journey back to a home of their own. The organization continues to break records, raising more than $340,000 this year. Funds will be utilized to update client living spaces at DuPagePads’ Interim Housing Center. The center provides full meals with an on-site kitchen, clean and healthy rooms with wipeable floors and furniture, and beds that can accommodate guests of all ages—from newborns to seniors.
