La Casa Norte follows a housing first model and offers a continuum of housing resources and opportunities to youth and families who are at-risk or experiencing homelessness throughout 43 different zip codes in Chicago.
Our programs include permanent, transitional, and emergency housing options that aim to support our clients as they work towards long-term stability and self-sufficiency.
We collaborate with a large network of property owners to increase housing stability and opportunities throughout the community.
At La Casa Norte, we believe that both, housing and supportive services are critical to ending homelessness. Our programs include life-skills and technology training, education support, employment-readiness, case management, therapy, food, clothing, and transportation assistance.
Our efforts to collaborate with an extensive network of human service organizations allow us to offer additional resources to our clients. Through the support of our partners, we are also able to offer clients access to mental health and substance abuse treatment, medical care, day care, legal advocacy and other needed assistance to support their increased housing and economic stability.
