Depaul USA is a national provider of services for individuals facing homelessness, working in six cities across the nation:  Chicago, Philadelphia, Macon, New Orleans, Little Rock and St. Louis.  The goal, of all programs, is the same:  ending homelessness!  The organization responds to the immediate crisis of homelessness and this approach works.  Staff encourage personal growth and healing while treating people with dignity and respect.  Staff also listen to participants when they describe what is needed to find their way back to hope.  With a toolkit of best practices and a philosophy of compassionate care, Depaul USA redefines how to make charity work in an ever-changing time.  

Should you or someone you know need homeless assistance, please contact the Chicago Headquarters, Candace Anderson, Director of Operations email: phone: (312) 362-7729.
