Humboldt Park Supportive Housing Development Moves Forward

December 11, 2013


The development of a new supportive housing facility in Humboldt Park will be supported through $1 million in Tax Increment Financing (TIF) under a plan approved today by City Council.

Children’s Place Association LLC will build the three-story structure at 3533-45 W.Chicago Ave. for families where at least one member of the household has a disability and a history of homelessness. The $5.1 million “West Humboldt Place” complex will include a mix of 13 studio, two-, and three-bedroom apartments with amenities including a community room, computer center, and off-street parking.

Children’s Place, a nonprofit agency that primarily serves individuals and families affected by HIV/AIDS and other medical disabilities, will provide supportive services that include case management, family success coaching, mental health therapy, and job and educational assistance.

Additional funding for the project will come from the Illinois Housing Development Authority, the organization’s capital fund, and other sources.
