Earlier this week, Mayor Rahm Emanuel introduced a proposal to provide funds to temporarily reinstate limited emergency services for residents in need of shelter transportation between the hours of 12 and 8 a.m. These funds will serve to partially fill a gap left by a state funding cut that took place over the summer and led to the elimination of the service.
Beginning November 15 through spring, the Chicago Department of Family & Support Services (DFSS) will provide limited overnight transportation services to individuals engaged in the shelter placement process. Priority assistance will be given to individuals and families who have been suddenly displaced due to a crisis and need transport to shelter.
We continue to ask that our clients who regularly utilize Emergency Services for transportation call 311 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 12 midnight.
Keeping Chicago’s homeless individuals and families safe this winter is the highest priority for Mayor Emanuel and all of us at DFSS. If you know of anyone who needs shelter placement assistance, please call 311.
We thank you for your ongoing support and for all you do on behalf of our most vulnerable residents. Please contact Deputy Commissioner Joel Mitchell, DFSS (312.743.1524, [email protected]) should you have any questions about this service or any of our programs for homeless residents.
