Lincoln Park Community Shelter - Chicago, IL



Chicago homeless shelter for men and women.

The Lincoln Park Community Shelter (LPCS) is comprehensive social service agency serving adult men and women who are experiencing homelessness. Located in Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood, the LPCS has been providing shelter and other basic needs to our homeless neighbors for 25 years. Today, the LPCS provides interim housing, meals, and a targeted array of social services to over 300 people each year.

Interim Housing Community

The Interim Housing Community serves up to 35 guests each night year-round - 24 men and 11 women. In addition to meals and safe living space, the Interim Housing Community provides storage space, showers, and laundry facilities for guests. The average length of stay is three months, although there is no time limit as long as guests are making progress toward their goals. Last year, the LPCS provided safe, structured interim housing and three nutritious meals per day to over 260 guests.

Referral Information:

After completing an intake appointment, a person's name will be placed on the waiting list and s/he will be asked to call each week until there is space available in the program.
