Staying at LPCS

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.

To schedule an intake appointment, call 1-773-549-6111 on Monday at 9a.m. All of our intakes take place the following day, Tuesday, at 10:00a.m. at the Lincoln Park Community Shelter, by appointment only.
