Lazarus House is continuing to provide the best care possible to our most vulnerable neighbors
Caring is Never Canceled
The Shelter in Place Order by the Governor Pritzker means that non-essential businesses will be closed, and everyone is to stay home unless absolutely necessary. Closing is not an option for Lazarus House, at this time, as we are home for our neighbors who do not have any other housing options.
- is home to men, women and children
- is a 365/24/7 homeless shelter providing essential services
- currently is working with a reduced staff to minimize risks to our vulnerable population
- was unable to comply with social distancing restrictions due to space constraints and therefore moved our Emergency Shelter guests to hotel rooms. Lazarus House is still providing shelter, food, case management and connection for our guests
- is continuing to house our guests on-site in our Transitional Living program
- is anticipating difficulties for our Homeless Prevention clients in paying their rent portions due to lay-off and job losses, which will cost more in our subsidies to help these individuals and families stay in their homes
- anticipates a strain on our consumable supplies, food delivery, staffing and an increase in budget costs due to compliance with CDC mandates and the extended shelter in place order
This is a difficult and uncertain time for all of us, but it is also a chance for us to join together and support one another. If you are able, please consider contributing financially to Lazarus House, donating an urgent needs item or dropping off a prepared food item.
This work is our privilege and your support makes it possible. We pray for your health and safety. Thank you for all that you do for Lazarus House.
