Volunteers are always welcome--spend time with our residents, help with projects around the house, or donate needed suppliesWe provide 24-hour care, meals, and assistance to residents of St. Ray's--we even have two cats to keep everyone company!

The population experiencing homelessness ages and faces acute and chronic health needs and, too often, have to depend on emergency medical care for health needs. This "crisis care" is not sufficient for resolving chronic conditions. With goals to achieve self-sufficiency and stable housing, individuals facing homelessness needs regular care and safe, stable housing.

Depaul USA breaks this cycle by providing housing and case management to help individuals meet their health and other life goals. Permanent supportive housing is essential to ensure that the most vulnerable men and women living with disabilities are able to achieve recovery and a full life in the community.

          Chicago Dax Program

          August 28th, 2015

          The Dax Host-Home Program is growing in Chicago.  During the first quarter of 2016, the program, which serves at-risk or homeless DePaul University students, placed two students with host families.  An additional student lives in an apartment provided by a generous Depaul USA supporter.  Dax Program Coordinator, Sister Judy Warmbold of DC, is excited about the growth of the program. “Depaul USA is so grateful to our host families and the landlord who provided us with use of the apartment.  By providing housing options, these wonderful people are helping students remain in school and on track to reach their professional goals.”
