North Side Housing and Supportive Services
4410 N. Ravenswood Ave
North Side Housing and Supportive Services (North Side Housing) has been serving men and women experiencing homelessness since 1983. A collaboration between community members and three churches in Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood sharing a concern for the rising number of Chicagoans experiencing homelessness, led to establishing as overnight shelter, then known as Lakeview Shelter. Operating in a church basement, the aim was to provide food, shelter, and a safe environment to those in need. Recognizing the complexities of homelessness, services were expanded, and new programs were introduced, evolving the shelter into the comprehensive human services agency we are today.
Dedicated to ending and preventing homelessness, North Side Housing provides a wide variety of services. We are committed to assisting over 800 clients each year in becoming and remaining stably housed, healthy, and employed. Programs and services include our 24-hour Emergency Shelter in Uptown, Day Services Center in Ravenswood (with food pantry, houseware, clothing closet, employment assistance, care coordination, case management, etc.). Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH), Housing System Navigation, and Integrated Health Services. Our dedicated, knowledgeable staff have experience in serving Chicago's most vulnerable. Respect and dignity lay the foundation of our holistic, trauma-informed approach to working with clients. Services are provided in office, at participants' homes, and in the field. All programs involve intensive case management.
