Since 1982, LUCHA (Latin United Community Housing Association) has served thousands of moderate and low-income families with Affordable Housing Development, First-time Home Buyer Counseling, Foreclosure Prevention, Senior Home Repairs and Legal Assistance. LUCHA owns and operates 153 units of affordable housing, with 45 more under development in the West Town, Humboldt Park and Logan Square Communities, and through its Freddie Mac Borrower Help Center counsels 8,000 families annually in Chicago and the Midwest region. LUCHA also partners with residents, community organizers, financial institutions and government agencies to maintain its $34 million in real estate assets and to advocate for greater affordable housing options in the region.
In support of its mission, LUCHA has provided home repairs and modifications for community low-income seniors and other households through the City of Chicago’s SARFS program and other state and privately-funded programs. LUCHA’s success within the foregoing areas led to the organization’s recent award from the Weinberg Foundation to provide home repair and urban weatherization services to low-income seniors and other households. To this end, LUCHA will help low-income eligible residents/homeowners in targeted areas to save energy costs while increasing the accessibility and comfort of their homes, as well as supporting employment and entrepreneurship opportunities through contractors that will install low-cost weatherization materials. The Home Repair and Weatherization Manager will play a crucial role in the facilitation of these goals.
