While the COVID-19 virus has significantly impacted our normal operations, we continue to provide shelter and case management for our community. Please note that we are not planning on opening any of our rotating shelter sites due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Anyone who is literally homeless wishing to seek shelter through our individual accommodation program should contact or 847-689-4357 to schedule an intake assessment. Access to hotel stays is only available by individuals assessed at our building at 1800 Grand Ave. in Waukegan. Walk-ins are not permitted.


PADS Lake County is a community-based organization that provides trauma-informed support, resources, and shelter to individuals and families experiencing a housing crisis. We envision a community in which homelessness is rare, brief, and non-recurring; one in which anyone who may experience a housing crisis has timely access to the proper resources and services based on their individual needs.

We help individuals and families reach their full potential by providing a comprehensive approach to reducing homelessness. Our holistic services seek to help our neighbors create sturdy foundations in stable homes so that they can build brighter futures for themselves and contribute to our community.

The event will be virtual. Your impact is real.

Although we may not be able to come together in person, PADS invites you to celebrate the bright futures that we know are possible for our neighbors experiencing homelessness. Join us for a virtual event featuring inspiring stories, the opportunity to win prizes from local businesses, and the chance to connect with our community.
