Information about Homeless services can be located on the community resource database, ‘DuPage County “C.R.I.S.”, Community Resource Information System’, http://www.dupagecris.org/.  A guided search assists in locating health and human service programs available to those in DuPage at low or no cost.  The resource records include a brief description of primary services offered, general eligibility criteria, what to expect at intake, contact information, a map to the site location, and a link to the program’s website.  Resource records can be easily shared via text, email, or print.  In addition, a calendar of health and human service events is also made available.

If information cannot be located in the database, or if it is preferred to speak with someone directly, there are two additional resources.
