Closure of Open Door effective June 30, 2018

The DuPage Federation on Human Services Reform will be discontinuing their Open Door program effective June 30, 2018.


Open Door has been around since 2009, assisting individuals at the DuPage office of the Illinois Department of Human Services with resolving crisis situations, including homelessness, food insecurity, transportation problems, etc.  To facilitate this transition, Open Door has been in discussions with the DuPage County Health Department and the DuPage County Department of Community Services to ascertain whether it would be feasible to continue providing limited crisis response services.  


While these discussions are currently ongoing, the Federation does expect that Health Department staff will be available Monday, Wednesday and Friday at the Naperville IDHS.  The Community Service Department staff are also expected to cover Tuesday and Thursday morning hours.  DuPage County Intake and Referral can also be contacted by telephone at 630-407-6500 or 800-942-9412.
