Providing advocacy, dignity
& shelter.

We help individuals and families reach their full potential by providing a comprehensive approach to reducing homelessness.

Update On Our Fixed Site Facility. PADS Lake County is seeking community support to enhance its services through a fixed site shelter. This will allow us to better serve our clients and to provide our programs in centralized locations in Lake County

Beyond
Just
Shelter

We envision a community in which homelessness is rare, brief, and non-recurring. Our programs make it possible.
