PADS (Providing Advocacy, Dignity & Shelter) Lake County

PADS Lake County offers a comprehensive approach to combating homelessness with the compassion and respect we all deserve.

Since 1972, PADS has faithfully provided immediate, critical services to the neediest among us – individuals and families that are experiencing homelessness in Lake County. PADS is the first point of contact and the ONLY emergency shelter for the homeless in Lake County.

When someone experiences homelessness, regardless of the reason for it, they can come to PADS.  Once there, they know that they will not only get the immediate shelter they need to stay safe and warm, but also get comprehensive resources to get out of homelessness and back into housing.

PADS’ vision is to provide a path to stable housing and self-sufficiency for everyone who experiences homelessness in Lake County. Our greatest hope is to help end homelessness and ensure happy, healthy, and safe lives for generations to come.
