Our goal is to help individuals who are facing homelessness or are currently homeless.


Everyone Deserves Dignity

We believe that everyone deserves dignity. That truth impacts the ways we serve our guests, volunteers, donors, and community partners. Homelessness occurs for many reasons. When case managers are involved with someone, it allows them to see a path forward. Once someone returns to their independence, they do so knowing that Hesed House will always be there for them in the future, if ever needed.


Hesed House has two on-site shelter programs as well as
supportive housing programs both on-site and in the community.

Hesed House is located at 659 S. River St in Aurora, Illinois. The Overnight Emergency Shelter is available to adults in need of housing, while the Family Shelter is open to families with children. There is no limit on the time for someone to stay at Hesed House; however, most guests find housing within a few weeks.

Our Comprehensive Resource Center (CRC) is located across the street from the main Hesed House building, at 680 S. River St. This is where case management occurs, helping people with counseling through traumatic experiences, financial guidance, job guidance, and much more. In order to receive help from the programs offered through the CRC, guests of Hesed House first meet with a case manager.
