Phoenix Daytime Drop-In Center

12:00-5:00pm, Tuesday-Friday

The Phoenix is a casual, welcoming space with a living room, computers, board games, musical instruments, and most importantly, companionship. Each person who enters the facility has access to showers, laundry, and assistance from our staff. The facility offers our friends with an address an opportunity to build a lasting relationship with our friends without an address. Whether you have an address or not, anyone is welcome to come and enjoy an experience that could change their life.

Transitional Housing

C-U at Home operates a six bed Men's Recovery House, a two bed Women's House, and small Family House. Residents stay for 6-12 months and are provided with weekly case management and a spiritual advisor. 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.

Street Outreach

The street outreach team takes time each week to go into the streets and connect with all of our friends without an address. This allows us to continue to build relationships with them. The street outreach team is on-call 24/7 and often receive calls from local law enforcement and hospitals to provide assistance in person or over the phone.

Transportation Ministry

Through the use of two donated vehicles and volunteer drivers and riders, we are able to provide safe transportation for friends who seek detox, shelter, and housing assistance in other communities across Illinois.

Education & Advocacy

We provide an opportunity for the community to learn more about our friends without an address, the specific challenges they face, and how we break the negative stereotypes associated with the "homeless" population. This is done through viewings of our documentary film, The Phoenix: Hope is Rising and speaking engagements at churches, schools, etc.
