The South Chicago community is facing a critical lack of affordable housing. Claretian Associates aims to use a comprehensive method of community development for the complete revitalization of the South Chicago community. Through key partnerships, we have implemented the Quality of Life Plan that includes improvements in employment, safety, health care, housing, development, arts and environmental awareness. Having a VISTA will make an important difference to the production of affordable rental housing in a community long underserved and lift people out of poverty.
