Housing Information and Resources

Emergency Shelter

If you or someone you know are experiencing an emergency, please dial 911.


If you or someone you know needs a place to stay, dial 311 or visit a Community Service Center. They will connect you with help for rental assistance, homelessness prevention, and/or overnight shelters.


HOW does not operate an emergency shelter program.

Supportive Housing


HOW takes all referrals for our supportive housing programs from Chicago's Coordinated Entry System (CES). We do not maintain a separate waitlist for these programs and we no longer accept direct case manager referrals.


If you or someone you know is seeking temporary or permanent supportive housing, the person seeking housing must visit a Housing Access Point to be assessed for the CES. Contact with questions. 


Please contact Housing Opportunities for Women at (773) 465-5770.
