How do I find assistance for shelter?

Thank you for contacting DuPagePads.

If you are sleeping somewhere other than outside on the street please stay where you are and first contact the DuPage County Information & Referral Services 1-800-942-9412 and ask about financial assistance. You may also contact Prairie State Legal Services to find out about your legal housing rights at

Current Interim Housing capacity is extremely limited. DuPagePads makes every effort to explore all safe shelter options, even if temporary when contacted for assistance. Housing evaluations for anyone without shelter are provided via phone at 630-682-3846 on weekdays from 8am – 8pm & weekends 8am – 4pm. If you are unable to access a phone, limited walk-up appointments are provided at 703 W. Liberty Wheaton, IL 60187, subject to availability. All individuals and families are asked to contact Client Services before seeking assistance at any Emergency Housing locations.
