There are several events coming up that we are excited to announce! We hope to see you at some, or all, of them!

Bike to Work Week in Oak Park
The Housing Center is participating in Chicago’s Bike Week and the Bike Commuter Challenge during the week of June 13-20. Our staff members have been long-time participants in the Challenge and look forward to supporting the importance of cycling to work again this year! Partnering with Greenline Wheels, on June 17 we will set up a pit stop for commuters at the intersection of Marion St. and South Blvd. We hope you will ride your bike to work that day and stop by our pit stop on your way!
