About PADS Lake County
For more than 35 years, PADS has faithfully been providing immediate, critical services to the neediest among us – individuals and families that are experiencing homelessness in Lake County. Like a hospital emergency room, PADS is the first point of contact and the ONLY emergency shelter for the homeless in Lake County. In fact, PADS is often the only hope for someone facing a long night in the harrowing cold or blistering heat.
PADS provides assistance to individuals and families experiencing homelessness throughout all of Lake County. PADS is a non-restrictive emergency shelter system and helps all people that come to us in need regardless of race, gender, age, religion, disability, or sexual orientation. PADS provides critical services that no other social or human services agency in Lake County offers. PADS is the only program in Lake County that provides emergency shelter in summer, enables families to stay together, takes in single fathers with children, and provides housing for chronically homeless individuals with severe mental illnesses and/or substance abuse issues.
PADS’ vision is to provide a path to stable housing and self-sufficiency for everyone who experienc...es homelessness in Lake County. Our greatest hope is to help end homelessness and ensure happy, healthy, and safe lives for generations to come.
