I received this information too late for my column, but it is very important!
The Case Management team at Puente del Pueblo is requesting support from all West Chicago residents to help identify vacant and rent-ready apartments, condos, and single-family homes for permanent resettlement for the families displaced by the December 13th building fire. Displaced households prefer to remain in West Chicago to ensure stability for their children and to maintain their existing support networks. However, the current supply of vacant units at major apartment complexes in town is extremely low. We are urgently asking for help identifying vacant units that are immediately available in West Chicago.
