What is PADS?
PADS stands for Public Action to Deliver Shelter. This is an emergency shelter and entry point into other outreach programs. From here the individuals are directed to organizations like the following...
- Tri County Opportunities
- Northwestern Illinois Center for Independent Living
- Sinnissippi Mental Health
We are very proud of the Shelter on many levels. We do a lot with a little and this fundraiser represents nearly half of our annual budgets. We a primarily funded through the community. The shelter is also primarily run by volunteers, and always has a constant level of supervision and over site.
We are one of many great organizations and the competition for money is tough. Our mission is to help people and be a light to those lost in the darkness. Please help us keep the lights on!
