  • PADS Volunteers Needed for 2022

    Update for Winter 2022: 

    PADS shelters are back in operation and they need your help! Volunteers to serve local homeless people are desperately needed.  


    The Chapel in Grayslake is now hosting the Saturday night shelter since they have a more suitable space, with room for social distancing.  They are scheduling volunteers in the same way we used to through Sign Up Genius.  


    Please click on the link below to check out their needs.  The page has 2 tabs, one for TCG (Grayslake) Saturday and another for TCL (Libertyville) Friday.  They also have a document you can view describing the shifts as they are different from ours.
