About Us

PADS Lake County is a community-based organization that provides trauma-informed support, resources, and shelter to individuals and families experiencing homelessness and a housing crisis.

We help individuals and families reach their full potential by providing a comprehensive approach to reducing homelessness. Our holistic services seek to help our neighbors create sturdy foundations in stable homes so that they can build brighter futures for themselves and contribute to our community.

Our Cause

All of us need a sturdy foundation to build our best possible lives. When we make sure a safe, secure place to call home is available to everyone, we ensure that our communities continue to thrive.

Our Partners

Our work would not be possible without the generosity of our community.

From making contributions, hosting fundraisers, helping us fulfill our wish lists, or advocating for our cause, our community partners make everything we do possible.
