The Village of Oak Park COVID-19 Public Health Order requires residents to shelter in place Fri., March 20 through Fri., April 3.

Our 24/7 emergency shelter is now located at Oak Park Temple and village officials have assured us that Housing Forward Volunteers and Staff are exempt from restrictions when working on our behalf.

Per section 10 “Definitions and Exemptions” (Page 5 & 7)

f. For the purposes of this Order, “Essential Businesses” means:

Katrina and Alec are part of a team from Oak Park and River Forest High School who come to our Maywood offices every month through the CITE (Community-Integrated Transition Education) Program. The goal of the program is to create a smooth transition from school to post-school activities, so that students with disabilities who have completed four to five years of a high school program may successfully participate in his/her community as an adult.
