Daybreak helps homeless families get back on their feet
Apr 22, 2013 9:22 AM - Bringing hope and housing to homeless families has been the primary goal of Daybreak of Lisle since its inception. The nonprofit charity helps families with children become self-sufficient by mentoring their progress while giving them a place to call home. To date, the volunteers have helped 80 guest families learn to be independent, to budget for their needs, to provide for their children and to take pride in their success. "From the beginning, the hardest hurdle to overcome was our fears," co-founder Mary Ellyn Durbin said.
