How to Apply

If you are experiencing homelessness and enrolled in any shelter or outreach program, you can ask the program staff if they can complete the Standardized Housing Assessment with you or link you to someone who can do so. This assessment records your current situation and needs so that you can be connected to a housing program, if eligible, when there is an opening. Housing programs range from transitional housing to short term rapid rehousing to permanent supportive housing. If you are not connected to any program you can drop by an access point to get connected to a Skilled Assessor who will complete this assessment with you and assist you in obtaining shelter if that is your goal.

You can also go to 10 S. Kedzie or call 311 from a hospital or police station to be connected to a shelter.
