Thanks to a foundation that began with years of support from congregations like yours, DuPagePads is excited to announce that the Spring of 2022 will mark the opening of our new Interim Housing Center, a place where families and individuals can check in to a safe room of their own. A 130-room, repurposed hotel just off of I-88, on Butterfield Road, this property will bring warm beds and COVID-safe rooms for individuals and families suffering from homelessness.

These Organizations Need Assistance

During the COVID-19 crisis, Trinity has been continuing to support local charities that care for those most impacted. If you wish to help these organizations directly, please look at the list below:

Food Pantries
Food pantries are experiencing a huge increase in demand for their services. They need both material and money, although, if you can donate money, that money will probably go further than the food items you provide.
Glen Ellyn Food Pantry - https://www.glenellynfoodpantry.org/
Northern Illinois Food Bank - https://solvehungertoday.org/
People’s Resource Center - http://peoplesrc.org/
