Mission Statement

Bickerdike was charged in its mission to redevelop West Town, Humboldt Park, Logan Square and Hermosa communities for the benefit of and control by the lower and moderate-income residents of those areas and began by developing affordable single family homes. While Bickerdike's mission has remained largely unchanged over the past 42 years, our work has evolved into a multifaceted approach to community development.
