Emergency Shelter & Interim Housing

If you need a place to stay, call 311 or visit a Community Service Center. They will connect you with resources for rental assistance and homelessness prevention. They can also refer you to an overnight shelter.

Deborah’s Place does not operate an emergency shelter program.

Permanent Housing

Deborah’s Place takes all referrals for our permanent supportive housing programs from Chicago’s Coordinated Entry System (CES). We do not maintain a separate waitlist for these programs. If you or someone you know is seeking permanent supportive housing, the person seeking housing must visit a Housing Access Point to be assessed for the CES. If you are interested in permanent supportive housing, please visit the Chicago Coordinated Entry System Lead Agencies contact list to get assessed for housing.

For further information, email the Corporation for Supportive Housing (CSH) project manager at ChicagoCES@csh.org with any questions.

To be on the waitlist for Deborah’s Place, please fill out the Chicago Housing Authority online application.

Questions about the application process? Check out the Chicago Housing Authority Application Overview video for more information.

Deborah’s Place housing programs are available to single unaccompanied women, including transgender or nonbinary individuals. We do not house anyone under the age of 18. For general information about Deborah’s Place housing programs, visit the Housing Services page or contact us.
