Using The StreetLight Chicago Phone App, La Casa Norte Pilots “Book A Bed” At Its South Side Youth Shelter
Homeless youth can now reserve a shelter bed using a new “Book a Bed” feature on StreetLight Chicago, a free mobile app for homeless youth co-developed by the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless.
