BREAKING THE CYCLE OF HOMELESSNESS
WITH HOUSING AND SUPPORTIVE SERVICES

People experiencing chronic homelessness have been homeless for a year or more with a disability. They can be difficult to reach and have complex needs.

Permanent supportive housing (PSH) connects them to long-term housing, case management, and supportive services.

Our Housing

In 2017, BEDS opened its flagship Ogden Avenue Supportive Housing facility, which brought 20 PSH units to La Grange. A year later, it acquired the nearby, 13-unit Dover Place. BEDS also leases 100 apartments scattered throughout Southwest Suburban Cook County. These programs include:

WIN serves people who struggle with mental/behavioral health conditions. We connect WIN clients to Pillars Community Health and other community mental/behavioral healthcare providers.
Our Aging Homeless program houses chronically homeless persons over the age of 50. We partner with South Suburban PADS and Pathlights to stabilize clients’ lives, avoid premature nursing home admittance, and reduce strains on the medical system.
BEDS collaborates with the HACC to provide community case management for individuals and families with Section 8 housing vouchers.

Customized Case Management & Services

All PSH clients partner with case managers to set individual goals and regain stability and independence. Clients meet with case managers at least 16 times each month and gain access to services including:

Healthcare
Employment assistance
Donated food and meals
Transportation
Counseling
Benefits application support

After experiencing homelessness for four years, Jonah now has a place to call home.

Supportive Housing services are based out of the Ogden Avenue Facility/Office, 9601 Ogden Avenue, LaGrange.
