About this title


A Recipe for Hope: Stories of Transformation by People Struggling with Homelessness, by debut author Karen Skalitzky, dispels the misconceptions around homelessness. It contains first-person accounts by some of Chicago's most diverse voices. Collected from the men and women of Inspiration Corporation, an organization dedicated to helping the homeless back to self-sufficiency, these true stories challenge modern preconceptions of homelessness and demonstrate how this often "faceless" problem affects everyone, regardless of race, color, creed or economic status.

These riveting portraits include the story of a man who, although raised in an affluent, suburban family, one day found himself destitute and living in shelters, only to make the long journey back to mainstream society through his involvement in theatre and art, as well as the former policewoman who quit her job so that she could follow her dream of serving the poor. These stories are redemptive oral histories that depict struggle and defeat, victory and love. But most of all, these are stories about each and every one of us, because this is not a book for people hoping to change the world--it's a book for people who are hoping to change themselves.

Perfect for churches, schools, libraries, recovery groups, service volunteers, or anyone with an interest in social justice, A Recipe for Hope includes recipes by several of Chicago's finest chefs that are delightful and meant to be shared.
