Mission Statement

Claretian Associates exists to build community within the culturally diverse neighborhood of South Chicago by working with community leaders, residents and organizations to provide affordable housing and related services for low-and-moderate income people, build resident-based leadership, and serve as a catalyst in creating innovative solutions to improve the quality of life.

Description

Since 1991, Claretian Associates has been directly addressing vital issues in South Chicago which has caused the organization to become a staple in the community as a force of stabilization. By employing a comprehensive model of community development, Claretian Associates has built a network of relationships and activities that have affirmed our faith in the future of South Chicago. Through our housing development activities in a targeted 12-block area, we have created a total of 137 affordable homes and apartments. Simultaneously, Claretian Associates has worked with other community partners to undertake housing development projects and services that have enriched the quality of life for the entire Southeast Chicago area. In the process, we have transformed a geographic area into a community.
