You will need to check the zoning for any area you are considering. Neighbors may have an issues with this in a heavily residential area, due to the large number of mentally ill, drug affected, and sex offenders among the homeless and the area already has special challenges. Good luck.

Yes Englewood Is an excellent place to start a homeless shelter. There are plenty of people in englewood struggling and in need of a place to go , to get off the streets. I use to be homeless in chicago, and their method of obtaining shelter was, go to the police station and call the shelter which was all the way on the west side of town, or go to the emergency room and call,, and somebody would come pick you up. I thought that was the weirdest way to do that, and YES, i am a former resident of englewoood, i know it first hand how it can be.....

There are many resources to help you with that answer. Start with the aldermen, go and look around yourself, and find the food pantries and other shelters in the area to discuss the need for more services.
This forum is not the right place for the question.
