The Chicago Department of Family and Support Services (DFSS) is a key player in Chicago’s effort to end homelessness. DFSS services include prevention, outreach, shelter and housing programs and supportive services.
In addition, DFSS staff assist residents during times of extreme weather. DFSS staff manage the City’s main warming and cooling centers, conduct well-being checks on at-risk residents, and provide transportation to shelter.
