We were able to be a part of making the baskets, donating items and drop them off at the facility.
United Way of Metro Chicago - Medical Respite Center provides 24/7 medical care in partnership with Cook County Health, which supervises all aspects of medical care and oversee to ensure each client’s recuperation. Housing Forward provides accommodations and three meals a day for up to 19 individuals. We also provide case management to assist clients in creating a plan for their post-respite housing and then connecting them to the resources they need to succeed. Our hotel-based interim housing was launched in response to the COVID-19 crisis and is intended for individuals and small families with minor children. This three-floor facility includes 55 living spaces, community spaces, and on-site structured programming. This program has proven to be a very successful program to keep clients in a stable situation while the organization helps them transition to long-term stable housing. Both programs are located at 211 N. Oak Park Ave., in what was formerly the Write Inn.
