Our Men’s Sober Shelter, formerly an emergency shelter open only during the winter season or during a heat advisory period, began year-round operations on October 31, 2019, and transitioned to a sober shelter in August, 2021.  Through the help of generous donors and community partners, it will remain open year-round.

The shelter is equipped to serve 48 men each night.  They receive a bed, snacks, and and wrap-around case management services.  Some friends 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. Some come to the shelter during times of difficulty or transition.

Our Shelter Coordinator and support staff provide a safe and healthy atmosphere at the shelter. They also guide our friends toward other local services and opportunities for work and housing.

The Men’s Shelter is open 8:30 pm to 7:30 am every night and is located at 70 E. Washington Street in Champaign. Overnight shelter for men provided upon successful intake. Email intake@cuathome.us to schedule an intake interview.
