We support PADS in their homeless shelter program by providing breakfast twice a month and winter clothing.
South Suburban PADS is an inter-faith program providing shelter and supportive services to homeless persons. Compassion, hospitality and dignity are key characteristics of the PADS program. 1990-2012
PADS partners with Faith Communities throughout the south and southwest suburbs for the use of their facilities as homeless shelters. These shelters are staffed with volunteers from local Faith Communities, members of fraternal, civic and social organizations, as well as individuals from the surrounding communities.
PADS provides the operational structure, supplemental volunteer support and supportive services such as medical, mental and substance abuse referrals, financial literacy instruction, employment readiness training, resume development and job search skills, homeless prevention programs, housing assistance programs and various life-skills training programs
