The Chicago Department of Family and Support Services Homeless Division plays a key role in managing the City's infrastructure related to prevention, shelter, outreach, housing services and leads local strategic efforts towards the larger goal of preventing and ending homelessness. DFSS works in close coordination with the Chicago Continuum of Care (CoC) the local body of stakeholders invested in ending homelessness.
The DFSS Homeless Division’s work is informed by collaborative efforts with the Chicago Continuum of Care (CoC), federal priorities and the community’s Plan 2.0. For additional information relating to Plan 2.0, visit: https://www.cityofchicago.org/city/en/depts/fss/supp_info/plan_to_homelessness.html
Our efforts are guided by the emerging needs and trends of Chicago residents seeking homeless services.
