H.O.M.E. (Housing Opportunities & Maintenance for the Elderly)
Non-Profit | Home Services and Painting | Moving/Storage | Senior Living
H.O.M.E. is a one-of-a-kind organization that fosters independence, joy, and connection for seniors with low incomes by providing intergenerational housing and housing support services. For H.O.M.E., housing is not a means to an end, but a conduit for supporting the people that society most marginalizes. H.O.M.E. knows that sharing a bus ride, a meal, a joke, or simply saying hello to others can make a difference. Serving seniors with warmth, connection, and joy is H.O.M.E.’s particular expertise.
H.O.M.E. renders visible the often invisible and undervalued older adult. Without our services, many seniors would be unnecessarily living in nursing homes, living in their homes in unsafe conditions, and trying to survive without access to food or medication. Our services are unlike any other organization in Chicago, and our expanding waitlist illustrates the growing need for our programs. The support of our community allows H.O.M.E. to provide direct services that improve the well-being of low-income seniors and develop a more equitable, robust, and age-friendly community in Chicago.
