Two low-barrier emergency shelters will be open throughout the winter

C-U at Home, with funding assistance from the City of Champaign, the City of Urbana, Cunningham Township, the Champaign County Board, and the Champaign County Regional Planning Commission, will be operating two low-barrier emergency shelters through April 15th.

First Presbyterian Church and New Covenant Fellowship will be housing the shelters, which are open to men and women regardless of whether they are under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The goal is to accommodate up to 25 men and 10 women each night.

C-U at Home’s Washington Street facility can still accommodate up to 48 men and 14 women in a drug-and-alcohol-free environment.
