Maria & Believe Shelters

Maria Shelter

Maria Shelter is a 50-bed interim shelter in the Englewood community for primarily for homeless women and their children. Each year, the facility provides food, shelter and programs to promote health and wellness and self-sufficiency for more than 200 women and children.

Believe Shelter

As a result of IWT’s exemplary operation of Maria Shelter, in July 2012 our organization was asked by the City of Chicago to assume operation of a second shelter located in South Chicago. Named Believe, this 50-bed program expanded the agency’s services to include families headed by fathers and intact families due to the emergence of this as a major need since the economic downturn. Each year, Believe serves more than 200 women, children and men.
