The Elgin Wayside Center is more than a homeless shelter. It’s a place where struggling and broken men, women and children, and the church, can connect. Here, guests come to our center for food, clothing, and a place to rest, but receive much more.

The Elgin Wayside Center has provided shelter for the homeless and witnessed lives transformed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  With the help of faithful volunteers, hundreds of individuals and needy families are assisted each year with practical, life-changing services and basic necessities, so the broken can find hope.

Like a temporary home, the center offers what most people take for granted – meals, safe daytime shelter, free laundry services, showers, and individual lockers to keep personal items secure. Computers to connect with loved ones, apply for work, or collaborative services.
