Housing Choice Partners works to break the cycle of intergenerational poverty and promote racial and economic diversity in housing.

Housing Choice Partners

Housing Choice Partners stands for Black Lives.

Where we grow up has a direct impact on our lives, including our health, educational opportunities, and potential for economic advancement. However, due to racial and economic discrimination over time, not every community has been afforded the same resources, and not everyone has had an equal opportunity to live in the community of their choice. 

 

Housing Choice Partners' goal is to expand the range of housing choices for families with low incomes so that no neighborhood feels "out of reach". We provide information, resources, and one-on-one support to those who are interested in renting in well-resourced, opportunity-rich neighborhoods throughout the Chicago and Cook County region.

 

Known as"housing mobility", HCP's programs are rooted in the belief that all residents, regardless of race, disability, economic situation, or any other characteristic, should have a chance to live in a safe, healthy neighborhood, provide their children with quality educational and future employment opportunities, and work towards reducing the cycle of intergenerational poverty.

 

Until all communities are well-resourced and provide the same opportunities, Housing Choice Partners will work to ensure that all families have a choice and the ability to live in a neighborhood where they can thrive.

Our Programs

Housing Mobility Counseling

We run a number of programs that assist families with low incomes in moving to safe, healthy, well-resourced neighborhoods. 

Rental Housing Support Program

Funded through the State of Illinois, we administered the Rental Housing Support Program for suburban Cook County. We currently work with over fifty landlords and families with extremely low incomes throughout the area.

Consulting Services

HCP provides a range of consulting services that utilize our expertise in mobility counseling and fair housing-related program creation. 

Policy Advocacy & Research

We work with state, local, and federal partners  to advocate for new or improved housing policy that centers racial and economic equity. We also take part in research to build evidence for best practices in mobility counseling programming and inform policy initiatives.
