The City of Chicago has stood up migrant shelters to meet the needs of homeless asylum-seekers arriving to our city. Individuals in need of shelter should contact 311 or visit the nearest police station to request assistance with submitting a shelter request. 

The Department of Family and Support Services (DFSS) and the Office of Emergency Management and Communications (OEMC) are vetting suitable City-owned assets to serve as temporary emergency shelters. If there are facilities in your community suitable for temporary shelter that can accommodate 75+ people daily, please fill out the following form. DFSS and OEMC teams will follow up to vet all possible options.
