The mission of the Emergency Shelter of the Fox Valley, Inc., is to provide temporary shelter to homeless individuals and families in a safe environment, while providing guidance to those both homeless and at-risk that promotes independence.

The Emergency Shelter of the Fox Valley was established in 1981 as a non-profit organization to provide homeless men, women, and children safe shelter. Our current facility currently can house adult men, adult women and families not to exceed 75 total residents.

The Emergency Shelter of the Fox Valley serves any homeless individuals regardless of their city, county or state of origin providing they adhere to our admission criteria. All residents fall below the federal poverty guidelines for income.

Listen to The Emergency Shelter of the Fox Valley's segment on 91.1 The Avenue's Sound of Service.
