We can do more and do it better.
By providing training, consulting, and resources, we help housing organizations better serve communities throughout Illinois. Our experts facilitate workshops, share best practices, and provide one-on-one coaching to nonprofits so they can serve more families and help our communities thrive.

We support housing counseling agencies with training and one-on-one support and advocate for the resources they need. As a HUD-Approved Housing Counseling Intermediary, we also facilitate the distribution of HUD funds to a network of subgrantee agencies in the Midwest.
