Strides Shelter provides year-round full day shelter services to adults located at 70 E Washington in Champaign, IL. This program will not require sobriety, abstinence, or criminal background check to participate in services. The right to self-determination is not only preserved but encouraged by the program so that the community members determine what they consider success and how they will achieve success. Case managers are assigned to every community member that utilizes the shelter, but ultimately the community member makes the decision on how and when they would like to interact with the case manager. Daytime services will be available to assist with linking to community resources, on-site groups, laundry, and showers facilities.
