C-U at Home operates a six bed Men's Recovery House, a two bed Women's House, a three-bed "Step-Above" house, and small Family House. Residents stay for 6-12 months and are provided with weekly case management and a spiritual adviser. Our goal with each resident is to support, encourage, and mentor them so that they can successfully become more independent, self-sufficient, and enjoy a stable life on their own in the future.
Our application process is generally a three step process, involving a C-U at Home employee and professional case worker. Following these steps, our Housing Team will determine whether or not the program would be a good fit for the individual. If you would like to begin this process, please call our Housing Coordinator at 217-888-0329.
In an effort to stay true to our empowerment model, we ask that all residents pay a small program fee while living in the C-U at Home houses. This fee is on a sliding scale depending on how many hours the individual works in a given week. If the resident is not working, no program fees are required but searching for employment is a requirement.
Our residents go to work each week, meet with a professional case worker, spiritual adviser and attend recovery meetings that are suited to the individual (as outlined in final agreement).
Each resident is asked to enter into a 6-12 month agreement with C-U at Home. We feel that in that time, the resident can begin to develop the skills needed to live independently and gain a feeling of self sufficiency. Since each resident is required to save a percentage of their earning with each paycheck, this time period also allows the residents to save up anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. Residents may be allowed to stay for a shorter or longer amount of time but these would be handled on a case-by-case basis.Emergency Shelter Transitional Housing - Family
