Working at C-U at Home

The Phoenix Daytime Drop-In Center brings our friends without an address together with our friends from the community. We are open from noon-5pm, every Monday-Friday and additional hours during extreme heat and cold weather. Friends can shower, do laundry, pick up mail and connect with local social services organizations, or simply enjoy the company of others.

Our C-U Men’s Emergency Shelter (70 E. Washington St., Champaign) and C-U at Austin’s Place Women’s Shelter (same location, but with a separate entrance at 504 N. Market St.) provide a haven of rest for our friends. They receive bedding, snacks, and the opportunity for case management.

C-U at Home exists not just to provide physical resources, but also to forge relationships with our friends. We do this through Transitional Housing, Street Outreach and our Transportation Ministry.  The street outreach team connects with our friends in need out in the community. Relationships with those we serve often starts "on the street," where we take time to meet basic needs, provide information about our services, and offer encouragement. The street outreach team also responds to calls from local law enforcement, hospitals, and anyone in need through our emergency outreach line (217) 888-0329.
