Tierra Linda Reaches Next Milestone!

Momentum keeps growing for Tierra Linda - a 43 unit scattered site affordable housing development which will feature green construction as well as health/wellness program offerings. Tierra Linda has received a great amount of support throughout its pre-development phase, and the culmination of this support was demonstrated on March 13th during a meeting of the City of Chicago Committee on Zoning, Landmarks and Building Standards. It was during this meeting that LUCHA's requested zoning changes for the Tierra Linda Project was approved.

 

Alderman Roberto Maldonado (26th Ward),   Alderman Joe Moreno (1st Ward), community residents, and LUCHA staff all came together to demonstrate support for the rezoning of land needed to complete Tierra Linda.

This type of support demonstrates LUCHA's commitment to meeting the needs of the community for more affordable housing options. True to its 33 year history, LUCHA continues to promote and preserve affordable housing within Humboldt Park, Logan Square, West Town, and Hermosa. While the goals of Tierra Linda are holistic and green, the project nevertheless represents LUCHA's fundamental objective of keeping affordable housing a realityWith the required rezoning now complete for Tierra Linda properties, LUCHA will continue to move forward with the project and bring affordable housing to our communities.  

 
 
 

LUCHA: Always Fighting & Prevailing

Earlier this year LUCHA received a very special thank you letter from Ms. Lydia Cortes - a LUCHA client who received small home repairs through LUCHA's home modification program. Below is a poem Ms. Cortes recently sent LUCHA as an expression of her gratitude:

 


Translation:


L U C H A
Always fighting and prevailing
United in reason
When someone is in need
Doing our work
Now at this time
We need commitment
From just organizations
Proud of their dreams

 

LUCHA is honored that its work in serving its clients can inspire them to create (not to mention the issues LUCHA's work helps clients address). Thank you for the reminder to keep striving, Ms. Cortes!
