Our Mission

To promote affordable housing, economic opportunity, and a suitable living environment free from discrimination throughout suburban Cook County.

Landlords are an integral part of the HACC's HCV Program. Without good landlords providing quality housing, our HCV families would not have affordable places to live.

We partner with organizations to provide additional services and resources for our residents.
