There is a waiting list for the Lincoln Park Community Shelter. After completing an intake appointment, a person will
have his/her name placed on the waiting list and s/he will be asked to call each week until there is space available in the program. Once admitted, there is no time limit to length of stay, as long as a person is making progress toward goals and following all rules and requirements.

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 conducted at 655 on Sundays at W. Fullerton (black wrought iron gate) 1:30 pm- 6:00 pm. Any adult experiencing homelessness or at risk of becoming homeless is eligible to come to the CEP and/or meet for case management.
