Lakeside Community Development Corporation

Preserving and creating affordable housing opportunities through education, advocacy, and real estate development.
Lakeside Community Development Corporation is a 501c3 not-for-profit housing and community development organization founded in 2005 with the mission of "preserving and creating affordable housing opportunities through education, advocacy, and real estate development." We are located in Rogers Park on Chicago's Far North Side and we serve residents of the City of Chicago and surrounding suburbs, with a primary focus on eight Far North Side neighborhoods. Lakeside is motivated by the belief that communities characterized by racial, economic, and cultural diversity are the ideal, but such diversity can be undermined by a lack of safe, decent, and affordable housing for low- and moderate-income individuals and families. Our work is intended to ensure that all people, but especially people of limited incomes, have the ability to enjoy the benefits of living in stable and diverse communities of opportunity.
