Ending homelessness in Chicago through prevention, housing and supportive services.
Renaissance Social Services Inc. is a non-profit agency which provides housing stability services to persons who are previously homeless and disabled. Homeless definitions follow HUD guidelines, and disabilities can include physical disabilities, HIV/AIDS, mental illness, substance abuse. We partner with Renaissance Realty and other affordable housing providers to provide case management to address quality of life issues and past circumstances which have led to their becoming homeless. The housing is permanent, affordable, and also includes rent subsidies for those whose incomes are eligible. The ultimate goal of the program is to help clients maintain their place in permanent housing, to increase their skills and income, and to achieve self-determination. Our sites are located throughout the City of Chicago.
