Night Ministry seeks to help homeless on CTA Blue Line
CTA has long been a shelter of last resort for homeless riders, especially in cold weather and especially on the Red and Blue lines, which offer 24-hour service. But passengers sheltering on trains have become more visible during the COVID-19 pandemic as the number of office commuters dropped and as finding space in shelters or other typically reliable options became challenging. The Night Ministry, which provides the services at Forest Park and sets up a similar program on the Red Line, typically served more people weekly in the first months of 2022 than the year before. The Chicago Department of Public Health began funding the Night Ministry pilot program in January 2021, and the Department of Family and Support Services adjusted its homeless outreach efforts to include measures like providing protective gear and connecting people to vaccines and testing.

Stock Market Today: Stocks Snap Weekly Losing Streak
Stocks headed into the long weekend on a high note with all three major indexes posting gains for the week for the first time in a long time. As a a reminder, markets will be closed this Monday, May 30, for Memorial Day.

Boosting investor sentiment today was the latest inflation update, with this morning's report from the Commerce Department showing that the core personal consumption expenditures (PCE) price index - which excludes energy and food prices - rose 4.9% annually in April. While this pace is still elevated, it's down from the 5.2% year-over-year rise seen in March.

The drop in the savings rate indicates "U.S. consumers are now starting to chip away at those much-ballyhooed excess savings [accumulated during the pandemic], to help pay for the spurt in food and energy costs," says Douglas Porter, chief economist at BMO Capital Markets. 

But even with that money already spent, there's still an estimated $2.3 trillion, or more than 9% of gross domestic product, in savings, he adds. "True, they are not well distributed across income cohorts - hence the wildly differing experiences by varying retailers. But, even if just a third of these pandemic savings are spent, this will readily support overall outlays through 2023," Porter says.
