The Foundation for Homan Square serves as an umbrella organization over a tapestry of community resources in Chicago’s North Lawndale neighborhood. With K-12 educational facilities, an active and robust community center, and a literal tower of nonprofit amenities — as well as hundreds of units of nearby affordable housing — our community is thriving and ready for the next stage of development.
In close collaboration with community members — and with leadership from our Community Advisory Council and Homan Square Leadership Council — we have developed several key goals:
- Explore opportunities for development within an expanded Homan Square footprint;
- Develop quality housing across the spectrum of affordability;
- Develop mixed-use and commercial projects that provide space for community programming and local businesses; and
- Inspire potential investment in specific projects within the larger Plan.
