Chicago, Illinois, USA
MissionH.O.M.E. helps Chicago's low-income seniors maintain their independence by providing services unlike any organization in the City of Chicago. H.O.M.E.'s services include a home upkeep and repair service to ensure seniors enjoy healthy and safe living conditions. A shopping bus assists seniors who have limited mobility or live in food deserts to have access to groceries, pharmacies and medical services that are essential to their well-being. H.O.M.E. also owns and manages three affordable buildings where seniors can choose between two styles of living--individual apartments or, for residents who need some assistance, shared living. H.O.M.E.'s moving program offers seniors support and assistance through one of life's most stressful events--moving from one home to another.
