CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA) — We told you yesterday, CU at Home has reopened its drop-in center. They were dealing with a staffing shortage and temporarily stopped services.
People who use the center are glad it’s open.
Ross Barlow sleeps outside at night and says it’s great to get a break from the heat during the day.
“Out of the weather,” said Ross Barlow, who is staying in Champaign. “They offer a lot of services that I’d like to take advantage of and pass on later on.”
The drop-in center is open from 12 to 5 Tuesday to Friday.
There is no capacity limit.
The overnight shelter will reopen next Monday. This applies for the CU Men’s Shelter and CU at Austin’s Place Women’s Shelter.
