The Men's Winter Shelter in Champaign County is now closed for the season. It will re-open in late Autumn 2019. Thank you for your support!
A new winter overnight emergency shelter will be available for men in Champaign County. The shelter will be open December through March. This shelter effort is a collaboration between local churches, businesses, individuals, and other community organizations. This shelter fills an important gap in services for homeless men. Austin's Place has provided emergency overnight winter shelter for women for the past 10+ years.
The CSPH Emergency Shelter Development Team will work together to provide advice and oversight for the shelter staff. C-U at Home will provide training and orientation for the shelter staff.
This is serving as a pilot for year-round Men’s Emergency Shelter. Over the months we will gather valuable information about those in our community who are seeking shelter. It is our hope that this will be a foundation to build upon, and with multiple cooperating churches at the core, we hope to have a shelter solution soon.
