With help from donors and volunteers, we support local businesses and our clients at the same time

Sunday, April 5th, 2020

Today marks two weeks since we moved all clients staying in our 24/7 PADS Shelter at Oak Park Temple to individual accommodations. As you might imagine, it’s been challenging, but with ongoing help from our donors, local restaurants and caterers, and community volunteers, a plan for providing nutritious food is in place. This weekend’s meals came from Cucina Paradiso in Oak Park.

Are You a Superhero?

Somewhere in this community, before each new regular shelter season begins, a variety of unassuming people file into a room, pick up a folder and sit down. At first glance they have the familiar faces of neighbors, family, fellow church members and friends – but they are in fact superheroes.

The summer Transitional Shelter program provides short-term shelter for up to 12 clients that are on an employment or educational track or have an imminent housing plan in order to rapidly re-house individuals and families.  There are also three beds dedicated to those who are newly homeless.
