Operates in the Chicago Lawn community, across from Marquette Park, a Chicago Park District property where many homeless persons congregate and bed down at night, making it readily accessible to a sizable homeless population. We feed, bathe and clothe up to 35 of those indigent and needy individuals six nights per week.
This process provides information, assessment, referral and/or outreach services to men and women ages 18 and over who are homeless, housing insecure, or who are in imminent danger of becoming homeless. This program ensures that clients and families receive appropriate agency and community services for which they are eligible.
Designed for shelter diversion, this program offers Housing Placement Assistance for qualified applicants. This includes registration with Chicago-area agencies for very low to moderate income persons and for subsidized housing.
Limited and one-time financial assistance may be available for 1st month's rent or security deposit.
Homeless Prevention Assistance may also be available.
