Rebuilding our Support Center

Monday, November 13th, 2017

After our fire at our Headquarters in Maywood, we quickly put an action plan in motion to make our recovery as prompt and predictable as possible in order to limit the disruption in services and programs to the clients we serve. St. Eulalia has generously worked with us throughout the rebuilding process to help Housing Forward in our efforts to resume our operations in our Support Center and Headquarters.

How Much Does it Cost to Make a Nickel?

Did you know, in 2016 it cost the United States Mint 6.23 cents to make a nickel?

On Thursday, July 13, Ian Cox, will be taking the stage as the new Trivia Master for Housing Forward’s annual Trivia Night. Teams of up to six people will participate in a mind-bending night of trivia at FitzGerald’s in Berwyn. Ian has a few tricks up his sleeve to keep the night interesting, but you will have to join us to find out the twists our trivia will take this year.
