The Chicago Avenue Mission is a 16 bed emergency homeless shelter whose mission is to give homeless adult men and women a safe and warm place to stay. Our goal is to help all of our homeless guests attain the skills, tools, and resources they need to become permanently housed once again.
The Mission is open daily from 6 p.m. to 8 a.m. from October 1st through May 31st each year and serves 50 to 60 unduplicated homeless men and women each year. Evening meal at 6:30 p.m. and breakfast every morning. Shower and laundry facilities also available.
Hope House is an eight-unit permanent supportive housing program for chronically homeless adults with disabilities.
The program is designed to give men and women who have disabilities that contribute to regular episodes of homelessness a safe place to permanently live. All Hope House clients receive support services, such as case management, counseling, household life skill training, and employment recovery services.
Almost all of the men and women served through Hope House were once regular clients and residents of FACC's Chicago Avenue Mission emergency homeless shelter or were living on the streets.
