House Warming!

Cover a Shelter

During the shelter season, SSPADS is often in need of extra-large twin, full, and queen sheets as well as warm blankets. If you or your orgranization is interested in donating sheets or blankets to our shelters, please contact

Liz Agbarah at or call 708.332.7000 ext. 131

When SSPADS' clients are placed in housing, they often require furniture and other household items to help make their house into a home. Items that are frequently needed include new beds, dressers, tables, and chairs and other small furniture. South Suburban PADS partners with the Chicago Furniture Bank, a non-profit organization that provides  all of these items above and more, however, clients need to pay a $50 fee and rent a truck usually $250 to pick up the furniture. A Donation of $300 towards a House Warming, would ease the stress and burden of moving-in to a new home. Please click on the donate button (note House Warming in the memo) or send a check made out to South Suburban PADS at:
