Some have been curious as to where I have been for the past few months. My efforts have gone towards helping individuals get affordable housing in Illinois. This series of videos will provide a beacon of light and hope for those who may be struggling and have no where else to go. My first video in this new adventure highlights affordable housing for veterans in Joliet, Illinois. This is Hope Manor Joliet.
Meet the residents of Hope Manor Joliet: Bobby Mister, Latondra Green, and Jeanie DeLascasas. The Illinois Housing Development Authority is proud to share these unique impact stories of Veteran residents of Hope Manor Joliet, the first large-scale, campus-style supportive development in Will County specifically designed to provide low income housing for veterans struggling with homelessness.
In partnership with the VOA of Illinois, LIHTC, HOME Funds, Rental Support, developers and local resources, the Illinois Housing Development Authority was able to provide financing for three phases of the Hope Manor initiative, with locations in Humboldt Park, Englewood, and Joliet. Hope Manor Joliet’s high quality housing and intensive supportive services are providing the change and opportunity to improve lives and long-term housing stability.
