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. 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 difficulty or transition. Whatever the case, we are here to provide pathways to progress for everyone.

Our Manager of Shelter Services and staff provide a safe and healthy atmosphere at the shelter. They also guide residents toward other local services and opportunities for work and housing.

The C-U Men’s Shelter is open 8:30 pm to 7:00 am every night and is located at 70 E. Washington Street in Champaign. Overnight shelter for men is provided upon successful intake. Email [email protected] or call (217) 819-4569 to schedule an intake interview.
