Sojourner House Updates

Friday, April 5th, 2019

Currently, under development and due to open this spring, Sojourner House is a partnership of Housing Forward and the Oak Park Housing Authority. Located on the property at 324 N. Austin Ave., Oak Park, there are two residential buildings on the property. The front building has 5 individual apartments and in the back is a family-designated coach house. When complete it will be the only one if its kind in Cook County providing immediate, temporary housing for families with minor children, persons with physical limitations, and those who need care and respite after receiving hospital services. In additionto the Oak Park Housing Authority, this partnership brings community stakeholders such as Oak Park Residence Corporation, and MacNeal Hospital.  We are thrilled to be strengthening our community’s safety net with this program and we will be updating our website as the project develops.
