Loaves & Fishes: Warming homes and hearts


Our CARES team at Loaves & Fishes has been busy responding to the need for emergency assistance in our community. They receive about twenty-five calls a day from residents who need help paying their rent and utilities. Because of the cold weather, some utility companies have granted relief; however, people are struggling to keep up with their bills. Loaves & Fishes is currently offering assistance through the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP).

This program helps families with home energy costs. Counselors are available at our High Grove location to help eligible families. Appointments can be made by calling (630) 355-3663.

We rely on support from the community as well as our partnerships with the City of Naperville and other agencies to provide assistance. We are very grateful for this generosity.

See the ways you are making a difference by reading these heartwarming quotes of thanks from our clients:

“Your help increased my confidence and spirit.”

“Thank you so much for all of your help with receiving rent and electricity assistance! Please thank the community for their generosity and kindness with helping families in need. This assistance has provided me the opportunity to catch up on my past bills and continue to pay my rent and other bills on time moving forward.”

“We wouldn’t have gotten through these past months without you. What you have done has saved our lives. I can sleep better at night.”

“I was in need, and you helped me out.  Loaves & Fishes helped me maintain my dignity. There is nothing more you could have done for us.”

Thank you to the many compassionate and generous hearts who make it possible for us to provide support and counsel to people in need. We are working together for a common goal, to lift one another up and provide hope for a better tomorrow.
