With statistics like these, it’s no surprise that many men, women and children in Kendall County are struggling to keep their homes and apartments. With winter right around the corner, the need to serve our county’s homeless has never been greater.
If you’re facing homelessness, we want to help. If you’re considering volunteering, please contact us. We need more than 500 volunteers each PADS “season”, to effectively serve the county’s homeless from October through April.
Right now, we’re training volunteers, equipping facilities, and praying that God touches the hearts of volunteers across the county and beyond.
We’ve redesigned our website to serve both guests and volunteers better. We welcome your feedback and look forward to working with you to better serve our guests this season.
