Homelessness doesn’t just exist in the inner city. There are real people living on the streets in our own hometown, and there is something you can do about it. South Suburban PADS is a local social service agency that has served over 15,000 men, women and children by providing emergency shelters every night of the week. We’ll go to one of those locations to hear from a PADS volunteer about the myths and facts of homelessness. We'll also stock their food pantry and pack wellness kits. Find out what suburban homelessness can look like and be an active part of our community by providing real help. Community service hours given.
*For this program students will travel in The Bridge Bus to an offsite location. They will be going to 4955 158th Street in Oak Forest. Must have ‘Permission to Transport’ indicated on Student Membership Application (check your Student Portal to make sure).
