Mission Statement

The Chicago Department of Human Services leads the charge to reduce poverty by providing resources and support to Chicago 's most vulnerable and responds rapidly to people in crisis.

Description

The Chicago Department of Human Services (CDHS) is about people and partners. Drawing on a strong network of social service providers in Chicago , we connect individuals and families in need to resources.

CDHS is a key player in Chicago 's Plan To End Homelessness. We administer federal, state and city funds to organizations that provide homeless prevention services, housing options and social services. Our mobile clinics and outreach teams work the streets as a first measure to engage homeless adults in programs and services.

Emergency Services assists those in crisis who need immediate, stabilizing services. We provide round-the-clock response to victims of home fires and other disasters.

CDHS operates six Human Services Centers across the city. These facilities focus on long-term case management leading clients to self-sufficiency.

Service Connector helps CHA families gain and maintain security as the city's plan to transform public housing proceeds.
