Men’s Shelter

Providing Stability and Hope


Our C-U Men’s Shelter, originally seasonal, began year-round operations on October 31, 2019. Through the help of generous donors and community partners, it remains open year-round.

The shelter is equipped with bunks to accommodate up to 48 individuals each night. Residents receive linens, snacks, and wrap-around case management services. Many help around the facility by doing laundry, cleaning bathrooms, mopping the floor, or removing trash. Some are only with us for a brief time as the need arises. Others come to the shelter during times of deep struggle. Whatever the case, we are here to provide pathways to progress for everyone.

The shelter is every night from 8:30pm until 7:00am. It is located at 70 E. Washington Street in Champaign. Overnight shelter is provided upon successful intake. Our staff provide a safe and healthy atmosphere at the shelter. They also guide residents toward other local services and opportunities for work and housing.
