I'll always have a soft spot in my heart for folks who work for and start non-profits. Entrepreneurship is tough enough as it is, but running an organization that isn't supposed to turn a profit is, well -- I respect it. Especially in this economy. So, it is in that spirit that I present to you, cool reader person, a peek inside Northwest Passage, a non-profit "supportive living community" for blind and visually impaired adults right here in Chicago.
