COVID-19 Updates

Lazarus House is continuing to provide the best care possible to our most vulnerable neighbors

Care is Never Canceled

Lazarus House shelter guests have been living back in-house since December of 2020. Prior to this, starting in March of 2019, they were in hotel rooms to minimize the health risks of COVID-19. We continue to follow all of the CDC and Kane County Health Department guidelines to ensure we are providing the safest environment possible for the men, women and children we serve. Within shelter, continue to have everyone in wear their mask, utilize hand sanitizer and clean high touch areas frequently. Our guests’ beds are six feet apart and tables are marked in six foot increments for meals. Though so much has changed during this pandemic, our mission to serve has not.

Lazarus House is:

  • home to men, women and children
  • a 365/24/7 homeless shelter providing essential services
  • currently working with minimal volunteers to reduce risks to our guests
  • experiencing a shortage of overnight volunteers
  • beginning to, once again, have educational groups to support guest needs

This has been and continues to be a difficult and uncertain time for all of us, but it is also a chance for us to join together and support one another. If you are able, please consider contributing financially to Lazarus House, donating an urgent needs item or dropping off a prepared food item.

This work is our privilege and your support makes it possible. We pray for your health and safety. Thank you for all that you do for Lazarus House.

We mail tax receipt letters to all financial contributors in the few weeks following a monetary donation. If you would like a tax receipt for your supply donations, please ask for one from the staff person who accepts the donation. We are not able to prepare in-kind receipts at a later time.
