Centralized Intake for Homeless (CIH) Walk-In Assessments

If you are experiencing homelessness and live in Champaign County, CIH may be able to connect you to a homeless assistance program that can help.

You are strongly encouraged to bring:

Verification of your homeless situation (for example, a letter from someone like a case manager or friend stating where you are currently sleeping; it must include the date and their contact information)
Photo ID
Social Security card(s)
Birth certificate of minor child(ren)
Disability verification (if applicable)

When a homeless assistance program has a vacancy and you are the next eligible household based on the prioritization established by the Continuum of Service Providers to the Homeless, you will be referred to the homeless assistance program. Each homeless assistance program has individual and specific eligibility requirements.
