Our Mission

To provide Hope, Opportunity and Support that empowers women and children on their journey from homelessness to self-sufficiency.

Home of the Sparrow is the only agency in McHenry County that exclusively serves homeless or imminently homeless women and their children with the goal of helping them reach self-sufficiency and permanent housing. It now offers not only a transitional shelter and apartment program, but also a rapid rehousing and affordable housing program, as well as outreach and prevention services. 

Women who come to HOS are generally single, pregnant, and accompanied by their children. Approximately 70 percent have domestic violence in their history. At any given time, up to 65 percent of the transitional shelter residents are children. Reasons for homelessness can include domestic violence, unforseen housing or financial crisis, a death in the family, or a medical emergency

After addressing the most immediate needs, case managers develop individualized plans for each client and provide assistance for attainment of goals.

HOS provides a safe living environment and resources as clients rebuild their lives.
