Center is a 22 bed transitional housing facility for homeless
men. The Staben Center provides a myriad of services to
assist its residents in attaining self-sufficiency. Participants
reside at the Staben Center for 180 days.
In 1993, Patricia
Jones, Waukegan Township Supervisor/CEO and the Board of Trustees,
began the unique and challenging task of renovating the historical
Waukegan Fire Station building. With the renewed spirit of savings
lives, many volunteers, friends, community leaders, and concerned
citizens transformed an old garage for fire truck into a useful
and much needed transitional housing facility for homeless men.
Center was named in memory of Milton E. Staben (1919-1993)
former Waukegan Township Supervisor and his son, Peter Staben
(1943-1993). Both men dedicated their lives advocating for the
rights and better conditions for the underprivileged in Lake County.
Center has won various awards because of the uniqueness and
creative ways of confronting the homeless issues in Lake County,
Illinois. These awards include: 1st Place winner of the 1994
Governors Home Town Award and the 1996 Lake County Affordable
& Notary Services are available at the Staben Center.
