Food Resources

The most helpful and available food resources may be found at the Greater Chicago Food Depository. Always reach out to the organization before going to confirm they are open.

Staying connected is important during this time! There are plenty of great apps out there that can help you keep up with people, even if you can’t physically be with them right now. With most of them free and easy to use on any device, you’ll be able to bond with your favorite people in ways you likely never have before—all from the comfort of your own couch. Search the app or link, create a username and password, and get back to being that social butterfly!

In addition to the resource above, DHS launched an emotional support line called Call4Calm for anyone who needs to speak with a professional. Individuals can text “TALK” or “HABLAR” to 552020 for this free and anonymous service. Those who text will receive a call within 24 hours. This number can also be used to get connected with unemployment, shelter or food resources.

An important part of staying connected is access to high-speed internet. Chicago Connected is a program that provides free, high-speed internet service to 100,000 CPS students over the course of four years. See how you can get your kids connected.

Housing is possibly the most important and needed resources, and unfortunately, is one of the most complicated to navigate. If you are in immediate need of shelter, call 311 for placement in a city shelter. You can apply for a public housing or a voucher with the Chicago Housing Authority. Remember that all the options with CHA have a waitlist. Chicago has a list of affordable rental housing here. Additionally, Habitat for Humanity has some good information, and Catholic Charities has some excellent resources as well.

Please see information on crisis resources here. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration  is an incredibly helpful resource
