West Humboldt Place

The Children’s Place Association’s West Humboldt Place is a mid-rise rental building that will provide subsidized apartments for low-income families in which at least one member (head of household) has a disability. The building will also include onsite supportive services and space for resident activities.

The building’s first floor will become the hub for the agency’s expanding Family and Community Services (FCS) program. In addition to the tenants living in the building’s 13 apartments, 200+ children and parents from the community will be served by FCS. The site will provide families with direct on-site services – including case management, mental health counseling, support groups, youth recreation and HIV/AIDS prevention – as well as connecting them to other organizations that offer health care, education, job training, financial literacy training and legal services.

The Children’s Place Association is a nationally recognized, award-winning nonprofit with 22 years of experience in pioneering programs for special needs populations. It currently owns and operates two program facilities in Chicago’s Humboldt Park neighborhood and recently returned its administrative offices to the Humboldt Park community. The organization is committed to investing resources to continue to improve the quality of life for Humboldt Park residents.
