New Name, Same Mission

The Emergency Shelter of the Fox Valley is now Homeless Connections!

People are often confused by the name Emergency Shelter of the Fox Valley. We hear questions like, “Do you serve people or animals?” “What’s the difference between your shelter and the Fox Valley Warming Shelter?” “What do you mean you don’t just offer shelter?”

Over the years, the Emergency Shelter of the Fox Valley has adapted to meet the needs of people experiencing or at-risk of homelessness in our community. We’ve added Case Management, Prevention, and Street Outreach Programs that serve many more people than the ones we serve within the walls of our shelter. Homeless Connections better reflects the problem we are seeking to solve – homelessness – and how we solve it – by connecting people to resources that help them achieve self-sufficiency.
