The Crib to reinstate overnight-shelter services on July 26
by Matt Simonette

Officials from The Night Ministry announced, on July 17, that The Crib, the organization's emergency shelter for persons ages 18-24 in Lake View, will resume overnight services starting on July 26.

The organization temporarily suspended those services in early June for staff retraining, among other reasons. Daytime services have still been in effect.

"We appreciate the support from our community partners during the temporary cessation of overnight stays," said Night Ministry Senior Vice President Erin Ryan. "Over the past seven weeks, we have reviewed and revised our policies and procedures and hired and trained new staff. We thank you for your patience."

Ryan told Windy City Times in June that overnight services were suspended because of a "constellation of factors."

"We've been operating the The Crib for five years," she said at the time. "It first began as a pilot program, a seasonal program only in the winter months. Since it's become a year-long program, we've been talking about the best way to keep staff trained and informed on best practices—that's difficult to do when your program is only open at night, year-round."

The Crib is located at Lake View Lutheran Church, 835 W. Addison St. Persons needing overnight shelter should arrive at 8:30 p.m. for a bed lottery beginning at 9 p.m. Transportation will be provided to other shelters if The Crib reaches capacity.
