Illinois Valley PADS to open doors for season
Illinois Valley Public Action to Deliver Shelters (PADS) will open its doors for service to the homeless and those in crisis at 5 p.m. Sunday at shelters in Peru at 1320 Menards Drive and in Ottawa at 1120 Canal St.
PADS’ service area covers Bureau, Putnam and LaSalle counties for anyone 18 years of age and older along with their families who are homeless.
Between the two shelters, PADS has 54 beds, 30 in Ottawa and 24 in Peru, designed to provide a warm and safe place to sleep, eat meals, get a shower or do laundry and provide case management to assist in finding answers to the issues that cause homelessness, said Carol Alcorn, executive director of Illinois Valley PADS, which first opened in 1991.
