General Help Centers:

If you are experiencing homelessness and live in Champaign County, CIH may be able to connect you to a homeless assistance program that can help. Please send an email (address below) to inquire about CIH and to schedule your assessment. To begin the CIH process, you will be asked to provide the following: third party homeless verification (obtained from local emergency shelter providers), photo ID, Social Security card(s), birth certificate of minor child(ren), disability verification (if applicable).

When a homeless assistance program has a vacancy and you are the next eligible household based on the prioritization established by the Continuum of Service Providers to the Homeless, you will be referred to the homeless assistance program. Each homeless assistance program has individual and specific eligibility requirements.
