Individuals or families who have already lost their homes, for instance, may be given the name and address of a local shelter(s) to take care of their most immediate need for housing. Project NOW also helps customers access Housing Authority/Rental Information. In some circumstances, customers may be directly assisted with a rental payment or deposit to ensure that they will be able to maintain their current living situation.

The Continuum, covering a region of fifteen (15) counties in Illinois, is comprised of housing, social service, and employment partners in the private, public, and nonprofit sectors.
