Located in Chicago's Humboldt Park area, La Casa Norte aims to impact the social problem of homelessness, both at the individual and community levels.
La Casa Norte operates a Crisis Center Program for homeless or at-risk of becoming homeless individuals, families and youths where we provide bilingual and culturally sensitive case management, housing advocacy, and homeless prevention services.
Our Solid Ground Supportive Housing Program provides up to two years of supportive housing for homeless male youth, ages of 16-21. This program allows staff to teach and model the skills needed for youth to maintain stable housing and employment, rebuild their self-esteem, address barriers to stability and prepare them for continuing education.
Esperanza Trabajando is La Casa Norte's job readiness and placement program for youth and adults. The program includes one-on-one job coaching, job readiness training, and support in finding employment. In addition, we operate an innovatie technical training program called Casa TeraU, a program training students in current office software, providing them with the necessary skills needed to find employment.
Our newest addition to the La Casa Norte family is Casa Corazon, a homeless youth engagement project which works with homeless and high-risk youth. The program provides street outreach services along with a drop-in center to help youth move towards stable housing, employment and education achievement.
Mission: La Casa Norte's mission is to serve youth and familes confronting homelessness. We provide access to stable housing and deliver comprehensive services that act as a catalyst to transform lives and communities.
