2023 COMMUNITY UPLIFT PARTNER
Constellation has been partnering with other local nonprofits as part of their annual NOVA series to raise awareness and funding for impactful organizations to the Chicagoland community. Our Community Uplift program seeks to join the commissioning of new music directly to the community we serve. Since 2019, Constellation has partnered with Center On Halsted, Fostering Dignity, Boys & Girls Clubs of Metropolitan Chicago, CASA Cook County, and The Alzheimer's Association of Illinois, making donations to each of the organizations following our fundraising efforts for these world premiere performances.
We are excited to announce the 2023 Constellation Community Uplift Partner: Chicago House!
Chicago House empowers persons living with or vulnerable to HIV/AIDS to lead healthy and dignified lives through housing and compassionate, client-centered support services.
Chicago House aims to play a critical role in eliminating new infections and getting to zero by 2030 and believes that housing is essential to ending the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Annually, we annually serve more than 2,000 individuals and families across four program pillars: housing, health, employment services, and the TransLife Care program.
Making a gift supports both missions of Constellation Men's Ensemble & Chicago House in what will be an incredible evening of world-premiere music on May 19 & 20. Please help us surpass our goal to make the biggest impact possible.
