The church has been active in the DuPage Public Action to Deliver Shelter (PADS) program since 2003. Pre-COVID, once a month, volunteers from the DuPage UU Church staff an overnight housing facility at a local church where we provide dinner, breakfast, and a bag lunch plus sleeping space and support activities for the guests.

While PADS altered its program during COVID, we hope to be able to resume our hands-on support soon. We have been providing alternative financial support to PADS to ensure the 40-50 homeless men, women and children who typically visited our site, in addition to the many that had counted on other sites, continue to have access to shelter and meals.
