About

What You Can Do: The Boulevard--Illinois’ only provider of medical respite housing for ill and injured homeless adults--is always open to musical performances in the evenings! We call this our "Songs for the Spirit" program, and our residents find it a lot of fun to hear classical, R & B, oldies, rock, ethnic, choral or sing-along music!

If your amateur or professional music group or singing ensemble would like to provide a 45-60 minute concert in our dining room, we would love to host you. We can accommodate groups up to 30 people, and sing-along’s/interactive music styles are always popular. Come once, or consider a repeat performance! Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Friday nights from 6pm-7pm are generally available.

What We Do: If you are homeless, what happens when you are injured or diagnosed with cancer, diabetes, or heart disease? The Boulevard serves over 300 homeless adults annually, helping them recover from physical injury, illness, addiction or mental health issues. After they recover, we assist Residents in finding safe housing and building a stable life: our goal is to help every client leave the homeless experience, hopefully forever. The Boulevard is the only medical respite facility for homeless individuals in all of Illinois.
