Our Night Supporting Sarah’s Inn
On October 19, Byline was proud to join with over 300 Chicagoland community leaders at the Oak Park Country Club as a Benefactor Level Sponsor of Stand Tall, the annual signature benefit for local domestic-violence agency, Sarah’s Inn.
Sarah’s Inn, whose hub is headquartered in Chicago’s Oak Park neighborhood, serves the city itself, as well as 22 surrounding communities in western Cook County through seven off-site locations. The agency’s mission is to improve the lives of those affected by domestic violence and to break the cycle of violence for future generations and it strives to fulfill its vision: to be a nationally recognized leader for community-based solutions that will end relationship violence.
Sarah’s Inn was founded in 1990, by a group of River Forest and Oak Park women who saw the lack of services that were available to support women and their children and didn’t like what was in front of them. Since then, it has grown to be one of the largest agencies of its kind in Chicagoland and Stand Tall helps it to deliver on its four areas of focus: support and crisis intervention, violence prevention, education, training and community engagement.
Byline has been proud to be a trusted partner in the Chicagoland neighborhoods that we’ve called home for over 100 years. We are honored to serve where our patrons also live, work and play right alongside us. We know that it’s in all our best interests to keep our unique and varied communities thriving. We wouldn’t have it any other way: we’re just where we want to be.
