BEDS Plus Care
The mission of BEDS Plus Care is to help vulnerable individuals stabilize their lives through housing and supportive services. Our vision is to end homelessness one person at a time in Southwest Suburban Cook County, where we primarily serve the Townships of Lemont, Lyons, Palos, Proviso, Orland, Riverside, Stickney and Worth. As a Suburban Cook County Coordinated Entry partner, we also serve prioritized clients from throughout the County.
From mid-March through the end of July 2020, BEDS delivered 12,506 nights of emergency shelter to 234 clients and provided 37,518 meals. BEDS successfully prevented any COVID-19 infections among congregate shelter guests and BEDS staff by strictly adhering to CDC guidelines.
