Centralized Intake for Homeless (CIH) Walk-In Assessments

If you are experiencing homelessness and live in Champaign County, CIH may be able to connect you to housing or services that can help.

You must bring:

  • Verification of your homeless situation (for example, an eviction notice or a letter from someone like a case manager or friend stating where you are currently sleeping; it must include the date and their contact information)

You are strongly encouraged to bring:

  • Photo ID
  • Social Security card(s)
  • Birth certificate of minor child(ren)
  • Disability verification (if applicable)

When your situation is highest-priority compared to others, you will be offered the housing or service options that you are eligible for as vacancies occur.
