The mission of LUCHA is to provide decent and affordable housing, housing services and education to low and moderate income Latinos and other residents. LUCHA fosters community stability in neighborhoods lacking adequate housing due to discrimination on the basis of race, national origin, religion, familial status, and disability. This is done by empowering residents through education and participation, promoting affordable housing development and home ownership, rehabilitating and managing housing, providing organizing leadership and advocating for resources.
LUCHA was founded in 1982 by residents of Humboldt Park, West Town and Logan Square to combat displacement and preserve affordable housing in the community. Since its founding, LUCHA has helped more than 68,000 low-to-moderate income families rent decent and affordable housing, obtain Section 8 rental assistance, purchase good homes, improve dilapidated buildings, make emergency repairs, obtain adequate insurance coverage, make their home more accessible or more energy efficient, and beautify their neighborhoods.LUCHA is a housing counseling agency certified by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the City of Chicago.
