I am Michael Banghart, the Executive Director at a nonprofit in Chicago called Renaissance Social Services, or RSSI for short. We work with people who are homeless, at risk of homelessness, poor, disabled, seniors, children, everyone in the communities that we serve who are in need.
I will be blogging about what is happening in the world of homeless services, supportive housing, disability rights, community news and whatever else is on my mind. My hope is that this will ulitmately be enlightening and a sort of record of the trials and tribulations of someone trying to run a small social service agency despite all the barriers. I also hope to tell the story behind the story of how nonprofits survive. I hope you enjoy it.
