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 men each night.  Residents receive linens, snacks, and and wrap-around case management services. Friends can 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 Manager of Shelter Services and 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 C-U 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 is provided upon successful intake. Email cedar@cuathome.us or call (217) 819-4569 to schedule an intake interview.
