March’s local benevolence distribution will be to DuPage P.A.D.S.( Public Action to Deliver Shelter  )

DuPage P.A.D.S. is committed to providing safe and hospitable shelter, support services and advocacy to people who are homeless in DuPage County.

At the Support Center men and women are offered physical and emotional opportunities to redirect their lives. Here, homeless and at-risk members of our communities are helped to take the first steps toward making positive changes in their lives.
The center, located at 703 W. Liberty in Wheaton, is open every day during the week from 7:30 a.m-3: p.m.

Vital to this commitment is DuPage PADS’ collaboration with religious and community groups in the county.

The Overnight Shelter offers men, women, and families a safe environment. The spirit of hospitality is a priority, as well as respect for each person. Staff and Volunteers provide dinner, breakfast, and a bag lunch; sleeping space; and support activities.  There is, also, an apartment complex where P.A.D.s is able to transition people from homelessness to resident.
