Emergency Overnight Shelters - See our shelter locations on our website or call. We have 2 of these shelters.
BEDS Plus provides emergency overnight shelter from October into May seven nights a week on a rotating basis among 16-18 shelter sites located in churches across Southwest Suburban Cook County. BEDS also provides a limited shelter program and dinner program in the summer.
Schedules and locations of winter and summer emergency overnight shelter and summer dinner program are subject to change.
A shelter night begins with a warm dinner. Each guest is provided with a sleeping area, mattress, and clean linen. All overnight guests can request clothing, including winter gear, and toiletries. A volunteer site leader and BEDS case manager act as resources for clients each night until 11:00 pm and remain on-call throughout the evening. Guests are provided breakfast in the morning and are given a sack lunch. At least one shelter per week has shower facilities. Showers also are available daily at the Day Centers and through YMCA shower passes. Clients are provided with bus passes or other transportation when needed.
BEDS Plus enters into an annual agreement with each shelter site. We provide management oversight, liability insurance, volunteer recruitment, on-site case management, client registration, and data entry into the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS), as well as all necessary supplies. To ensure effective management, our staff regularly meets with volunteer site leaders and communicates with faith community leaders.
