Expanding Affordable Homeownership
Opportunities in Homan Square

About the Program

The Home Sweet Homan Homeownership Initiative is an effort by the Foundation for Homan Square and IFF to build 20 single-family homes on vacant lots in the neighborhood. The goal of the program is to provide inter-generational wealth building opportunities to Chicagoans who live, work, or worship on the West Side.

By the West Side, for the West Side. Home Sweet Homan is part of a larger collaboration to construct 1,000 homes on the West Side to build the power of our blocks and people!
