The Service Committee is hosting a Goods Drive for West Suburban PADS!

What is PADS? The West Suburban PADS is the only agency whose sole purpose is to end homelessness in Cook County’s 20 near-west suburban communities. They offer a continuum of services in five program areas: Shelter, Supportive Services, Supportive Housing, Employment Readiness, and Homeless Prevention. More than 800 men, women and children use one or more of PADS’ services every year. For more information, visit their website.  The branch is based out of Maywood.
