PADS is in urgent need of a Saturday night emergency shelter site for the winter season…learn how you can help. 

Each year a contingent of volunteer church sites open their doors to homeless individuals. Working together they alternate the nights they are open to ensure all homeless individuals have a warm place to sleep during the months of October through April. These church sites are independent from McHenry County PADS but work in cooperation with our program. Through their mission to feed and shelter those less fortunate they play an important role in helping homeless individuals on their path to reclaiming their life.
