Those attending the Raising Awareness, Saving Lives event were encouraged to wear pink and purple in support of the causes.
There were over 100 people in attendance.
More information about CAPS
The Chicago Alternative Policing Strategy (CAPS) is Chicago’s newest weapon against crime. The CAPS organization cooperates with the community to reduce crime and also, promote a tighter kinship with the communities they serve.
What makes CAPS so innovative? It brings the police, community, and other city agencies together, to identify and solve neighborhood crime problems, rather than simply react to their symptoms after the fact.
The CAP strategy is supported through:
- Neighborhood-based beat officers;
- Regular Beat Community Meetings involving police and residents;
- Extensive training for both police and community;
- More efficient use of City services that impact crime;
- And new technology to help police and also residents target crime hot spots.

Sponsors of Family Promise of Las Vegas Volunteer Appreciation Party
The Glen Lerner Gives Back team recently sponsored a volunteer appreciation event for Family Promise of Las Vegas. The event took place at the Railroad Museum in Boulder City, Nevada.
Thanks to Glen Lerner Gives Back’s sponsorship, approximately 85 volunteers were able to enjoy access to the museum which was later followed by a one-hour train ride. As they soaked in the history of the 100-year old rail cars, they also enjoyed a nice meal and entertainment.
“Partnering up with Family Promise of Las Vegas for this appreciation event was an easy choice. That was primarily due to the vital role they play in helping families with children in Clark County achieve sustainable housing. Unlike homeless shelters in our community, Family Promise is focused on providing overnight shelter and meals to individuals. They are also among the few that provide sustainable housing, especially for families with children. Since Family Promise is the only local organization filling these vital needs for individuals and families with children, we wanted to support them,” said Guy Williams, community outreach manager at Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys.
Organization volunteers fill a variety of roles at each hosting site. These roles include cooking, serving meals, socializing with the guests, assisting parents with children and providing overnight stays. Volunteers also help with running the Day Center, fundraising activities and guest events.
“The volunteer program is the core of the Family Promise network. Therefore, we wanted to bless those who bless needy families in our community,” stated Glen Lerner.
Following the volunteer appreciation event, Program Services Director, Barbara Coggins stated, “We are thankful for Glen Lerner’s generosity in underwriting the evening. It was an awesome experience. It was the best appreciation event for our wonderful volunteers, and our volunteers are the backbone of Family Promise Las Vegas.”
