Buen HOGAR

En Español

Erie Neighborhood House’s newest program, Buen HOGAR, is a Latino outreach initiative of the Chicago Housing Authority (CHA) with the primary goal of providing education, assistance, and outreach in the Latino community to raise awareness on CHA’s services and programs, and to promote Latino participation via a targeted marketing and communications strategy.

Buen HOGAR offers Spanish-language assistance to the following: 

  • CHA Residents
  • Individuals or families currently on a CHA Wait List
  • CHA Senior Housing Residents
  • Seniors currently on the CHA Wait List
  • Seniors seeking housing assistance
  • Property owners currently participating in CHA programs
  • Prospective CHA residents and property owners

Through Buen HOGAR, Erie House hopes to engage organizations in collaborating, resource sharing, and facilitating housing services to Latinos in Chicago. Erie House’s partnerships with these key players will be integral in bringing awareness of Buen Hogar's CHA Latino Outreach Initiative housing services to Latino communities across the City of Chicago.
