About the Community Engagement Program

LPCS provides a valuable service in the Lincoln Park Community as a referral source for those in need. Neighborhood churches, hospitals, and police direct people in need of assistance to the LPCS Community Engagement Program (CEP) for resources addressing temporary housing and other services. CEP provides basic services such as showers, laundry, clothing, toiletries, Sunday dinner, and wellness checks provided by UIC doctors, and medical, and pharmacy students one Sunday per month. CEP is LPCS’ satellite location on the weekends 655 W.
