Our Men’s Shelter, formerly open only during the winter season or during a heat advisory period, began year-round operations on October 31, 2019.  Since then, it has been filled nearly to capacity of 60 on many nights. Through the help of generous donors and community partners, it will remain open year-round.

The shelter houses an average of 50 men per night. They receive bedding, snacks, and hope.  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. Many have nowhere else to go for a safe place to spend the night. 

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.
