The early-morning fire on Jan. 11 at 1700-08 W. Estes Avenue in Rogers Park has left residents from seven of the building's units practically homeless and struggling to find a new home. In the units, seven families were displaced from their apartments, including five with children.

Because of the raging fire, these families vacated their apartments with just the clothes they had on and a few items they could quickly grab on their way out. They left with virtually nothing! And, they need our help!

In order to help the victims of this fire, NCR has partnered with Alderman Joe Moore's 49th Ward Office, American Red Cross of Chicago & Northern Illinois, Ethiopian Community Association of Chicago, Refugee One, and the Rogers Park Builders Group to offer help and resources to the individuals and families of all those affected by the fire.

NCR has created a Fire Disaster Relief Fund, to help collect money and provide financial assistance to the individuals and families displaced by the fire, using the relief funds collected. Their most pressing need is financial support to help house them.

You can help the victims of this fire by making a tax deductible contribution, using the donate button below. All proceeds collected from the Fire Disaster Relief Fund will be used to help the affected families make a deposit on rent to secure new housing.

NCR will be collecting the funds through its website, in-person at its office if you would like to donate with cash, check or credit card or through the mail with checks until February 1, 2016. Please make checks out to Northside Community Resources and put Fire Disaster Relief Fund in the memo line.

After that, NCR will start distributing the funds, collected through the relief fund, to the individuals and families displaced by the fire, particularly those who did not have rental insurance.

You can help these affected families by making a generous tax deductible contribution to the Fire Disaster Relief Fund by simply clicking on the donate button. It will direct you to NCR's PayPal webpage, where you can enter in a dollar amount using a credit card to make your contribution.

For more information, please contact Derick Anderson, NCR Director of Housing at (773) 338-7722 Ext. 26 or via email at Please give generously. Thank you!
