There is a severe shortage of affordable housing in Chicago. The basic needs of women all over the city are not being met, resulting in more than 2,000 unhoused women sleeping on the streets on any given night.
Sarah’s on Sheridan
In order to fulfill our mission to end homelessness for women, Sarah’s Circle has developed a new building that offers more affordable housing opportunities to women in need of a home. This new building, known as Sarah’s on Sheridan is located in Uptown.
In our efforts to offer more affordable housing to women in Chicago, we recognize the importance of preserving architectural elements that keep the spirit of Uptown alive. For this reason, we have restored and re-installed the historical terracotta Viking heads that once adorned the original building. Introducing Sarah Cotta, the mascot and protector of Sarah’s on Sheridan.
Our newest building located at 1005 W Leland Avenue offers 38 units of Permanent Supportive Housing. In addition to 38 critically needed apartments, Sarah’s on Sheridan offers an improved space for our Interim Housing facility, with designated rooms for clinical and group activities, on-site case management offices, and additional private storage space for clients.
Thank you to the individuals and organizations that are contributing to this project:
Our building located at 4838 N Sheridan serves our clients’ daytime needs, offering meals, showers, laundry, and other basic necessities.
Above our Daytime Support Center are our administrative offices and the Judy Krueger Apartments, which offer 10 units of affordable housing to women who have been chronically homeless.
Sarah’s Circle will keep our supporters up to date with our building development progress. To ensure you don’t miss an update, you can sign up for our e-newsletter.
