You can play a part in doing something about Chicago's growing shortage of affordable housing, and play Robin Hood to a family earning less than 80% of Chicagoland's median income.
Community Partners for Affordable Housing (CPAH) is a land trust, initiated by the City of Highland Park, that helps provide quality housing to low- and moderate-income households.
CPAH is calling for 25 volunteers to help rehab its latest acquisition, in Highland Park's Sherwood Forest subdivision. The home has 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, a 1-car garage, a full basement and two fireplaces. When the rehab is done, the home will be offered for sale to a qualified buyer for $175,000 to $185,000, which will result in a monthly PITI (principal, interest, taxes, insurance) payment of approximately $1,200.
CPAH guarantees a "feel good" time along with coffee, lunch and snacks for volunteers who register to help rehab the home and show up to work between 9 am and noon on Sunday, December 4. Register by email, or call 847-681-8746.
