A gift of shelter.

McHenry County PADS continues to provide the only year-round emergency day and overnight shelter open to anyone experiencing homelessness in McHenry County.

The individuals being served are important and their success makes our community stronger.  

Whether an individual who is experiencing homelessness has taken the first step of receiving help through PADS or they have just secured housing after months of homelessness, each step of the way is monumental to both to the individual and our community.

All it takes is one life-altering event to experience homelessness, PADS step in where there seems to be no way out. This year, you have the opportunity to provide a fellow community member that is in crisis, a path towards self-sufficiency through a gift to PADS.

The holiday season helps us reflect on ways to give good fortune from one’s life to another, like the gift of shelter.Wishing you and your family all the very best this holiday season and all the best in the new year.
