The SRHAC SRO Outreach:
SRHAC began working with Chicago's
Department of Housing in 1996 to design and implement a set of initiatives
and programs called the SRHAC SRO Outreach Program.
The objective of the SRO Outreach program
was twofold: First, to promote the survival and preservation of Chicago's
single-room occupancy buildings (SRO's) -- which are an historic and
extremely vital low-income housing resource.
The second objective was to develop SRHAC as
a City-wide Resource Center where Chicago residents from all areas of the
city and of all backgrounds could find housing referral assistance,
primarily in SRO residential facilities.
The SRO Outreach Program has been
tremendously successful, allowing SRHAC to provide housing referral
assistance to hundreds of Chicago residents yearly, and become a solid
contributor to the City's 10-Year Plan to End Homelessness
In addition to its continuing work with the
Department of Housing, SRHAC has assisted Chicago's Department of Human
Services (CDHS) in it's homelessness intervention work, and has helped the
Planning Department in emergency relocation services. SRHAC is proud of its
commitment to the City and its work!
