Never 99 Mission Statement

​If you ask me why I named my organization Never 99, I’ll you tell the idea stemmed from work. You see, I’m a dispatcher for the Chicago Police and I can never send a 99 unit into a bad situation by him or herself, they always need an assist. And as a dispatcher, there are always two of us assigned to a zone so we always have someone by our side. And that’s exactly what Never 99 means, that yo​u’re never alone, that there’s always someone there, someone by your side. The best part of the name is that it applies to everyone of us, no matter our situation. We are truly Never 99. So if you ever find yourself in need of help for any reason, reach out to someone, anyone, and get you an assist, because there’s always someone, somewhere, that has your back.

Our mission and goal is to provide basic hygiene products to the homeless to assist them with staying clean so that they can focus on getting t​he additio​nal help they need to combat their homelessness. We provide each individual with a reusable tote bag consisting of the following items: shower cap, shampoo and conditioner, combs and brushes, toothbrush & toothpaste, mouthwash, dental floss, face soap, body soap, lotion, deodorant, shaving cream & razors, sanitary items, q-tips & cotton balls, first aid kits, condoms, and other essentials that many of us take for granted each day.
