Associate Board

The Associate Board’s mission is to support and promote Renaissance’s mission and vision through fundraising, volunteerism, and spreading awareness. We provide support to the organization, its staff, clients, and Board of Directors and work with a diverse group of individuals to develop creative solutions to help combat homelessness in Chicago.

Associate Board members are active, positive members of their communities who are passionate about increasing visibility of systemic issues, including the lack of resources for Chicago’s most vulnerable residents and access to clean, safe, affordable housing.

We welcome any individuals who are interested in helping to make a better Chicago to join us.


Chair: Johnny Pesenti
