Since The Boulevard opened its doors in 1994 over 9,000 men and women have been able to call us home, a place of shelter, a place to heal and regain their lives.  One of those individuals is Francisco who was brought to The Boulevard from a park bench.  Click “Francisco” to read his story.

Our clients arrive from many places, and with many issues: 91% of our residents have chronic health conditions; 48% suffer from a mental illness; and 55% suffer from addictions.  At The Boulevard we help our residents complete their medical and/or behavioral recovery, we help them begin to address the root causes of their homelessness, and we assist in finding and securing stable housing.  Each year our Assessment Respite program serves over 300 people at our 64-bed facility.  It is not an easy task.

We do not do this alone.  We work as a team with multiple collaborative partners, numerous volunteers, and a legion of dedicated donors.  Our success, for Francisco and others, has always been a collective effort.  Please help us continue this important mission by making a donation to the Boulevard today.  Together we can help people restore their health and rebuild their lives. Thank you for your kindness.

Interfaith House has become The Boulevard - The Road to Health and Home! Check out this video which shares some amazing client stories.


Each year, thousands of men and women without homes are discharged from the hospital with nowhere to complete their medical recovery. That’s why The Boulevard exists - to help people restore their health and rebuild their lives.

Originally founded in 1994 as Interfaith House, we are the only organization of our kind in Illinois, and we have helped nearly 9,000 people rebuild their lives. The Boulevard, with a capacity of 64 beds, is able to serve over 300 annually.  With your help we can reach so many more. Get involved and join our journey.
