PADS Emergency Shelter
Wednesday nights, October through April
In 2012 Redeemer accepted an invitation to open up its doors to the homeless by serving as one of seven emergency overnight shelters in the McHenry County PADS (Public Action to Deliver Shelter) program. The PADS emergency sites are designed to keep people from freezing during the cold winter months and are open from October 1 to April 30 each year. Individual emergency sites like Redeemer are open one night a week. Each site offers a warm evening meal provided by area churches, a safe place to sleep, breakfast in the morning, case management and hospitality. For information on how to get involved with PADS please visit their web site.
