Housing Forward Headquarters and Support Center in Maywood experienced a fire early Saturday morning between 2am or 3 am contained to the attic of the building. Fortunately, the building was unoccupied and no one was injured. However, extensive water damage will force us to move our base of operations for the short term to our newly opened Oak Park office at 6634 W. Roosevelt Road until further notice. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept in-kind donations of clothing or household supplies at this time.
Housing Forward will hold an Open House on Friday, September 22, from 4pm – 6pm, at their new office at 6634 W. Roosevelt Road in Oak Park featuring tours of the new office space, program highlights, and the unveiling of the designated Walk-In Center for Entry Point.
Housing Forward is in need of volunteers to assist in our Support Center with sorting donations, management of the clothing closet and assistance with client laundry services. Our Support Center is open Monday through Friday during business hours (8am – 5pm). Volunteers are needed to volunteer in 60-90 minute shifts.
