Housing Crisis

Partner with us to provide short-term relief and long-term support

The U.S. housing crisis is an issue that continues to escalate. It is complex and has affected thousands in our area, including refugees, asylum seekers, and other immigrants as they attempt to build their lives here in Chicagoland. There are several contributing factors to the housing crisis, including an undersupply of affordable housing; low or stagnant wages; and exclusionary zoning that is preventing the development of affordable housing.

While we work on the frontlines to provide housing to newly arrived refugee families and asylum seekers exiting shelters, we invite you to provide both short-term relief as volunteers to this crisis and long-term support as a landlord partner.
