West Suburban PADS


West Suburban PADS (Public Action to Deliver Shelter) was created in 1992 to provide emergency food and shelter to homeless individuals and families in Oak Park, River Forest and Forest Park. Today, PADS serves 20 towns in near west suburban Cook County and offers a wide range of services that address the physical, medical, mental health, financial, and housing needs of the homeless in our community through four program areas: seasonal Emergency Shelter; a year-round daytime Support Center; Supportive Housing including Transitional Housing for the employed homeless and Permanent Supportive Housing for the homeless mentally ill; and Homeless Prevention assistance for those at imminent risk of homelessness due to eviction or foreclosure. In the summer of 2009, PADS will launch a workforce development program designed to address the unique employment challenges faced by homeless men and women.
