About Lincoln Park Community Services

Our Mission:

LPCS brings communities together to empower individuals facing homelessness and poverty to secure stable housing and makes sustainable life changes. 

Our 2019-2020 Impact: In 2019, LPCS opened its new facility at 1521 N. Sedgwick in Old Town, increasing interim housing capacity by 137%. This has enabled us to provide imperative shelter to greater numbers of vulnerable populations during COVID-19. Despite the challenges of the pandemic, 77 Guests graduated from interim housing and obtained permanent, independent hosing during the last 12 months. 

Our Programs & Services:

  • ​Community Engagement Program (weekly street outreach)
  • Interim Housing Community (shelters located in Lincoln Park & Old town)
  • On-Track Program (individualized case management focused on housing, health, recovery, employment and support)
  • Permanent Supportive Housing (independent housing)
  • Graduate Community (support for shelter Graduates)



JOIN US ON OCTOBER 1ST AT 7PM!

Taste of Fall (ToF) is LPCS's annual, and always highly-anticipated, fall fundraiser. The purpose of this event has always been two-fold: 
  • To bring our community together to support our mission 
  • To highlight and support local Chicago food and beverage establishments
  • We wish we could once again gather with the community in a favorite Chicago event venue to celebrate, eat, drink and dance the night away, but we've worked hard to create an in-home experience that stays true to food, drink and LPCS. 
    Our live, 45-minute virtual event itself will be free and streaming right here on our onecause site! We will focus on the many ways the LPCS community comes together around food:  to serve and empower our Guests; to gather together; and to address food insecurity among individuals experiencing homelessness. 
    To support LPCS and local restaurants and businesses, attendees can purchase one of our signature TOF packages to enjoy during the virtual event! Packages will be available for purchase through September 25 and will be available for curbside pickup at our 1521 N. Sedgwick facility from September 28 through October 1.
