Are there any charity or religious organizations that help people who are between apartments/homes pay for temporary lodging in hotels or motels?

I work at a hotel and have been dealing with a guest who is in such circumstances over the last few days. There is only one homeless shelter within reasonable distance for this person and it has a waiting list a mile long. A Google search wasn't terribly revealing. Bonus points for organizations in or around Chicago (within, say, 65 miles).
