Illinois Green Mission Award

On May 14th, the Illinois Green Alliance presented LUCHA with the Mission Award of the 2019 Limelight Emerald Awards ceremony, an annual awards program which recognizes sustainable building efforts in Illinois. LUCHA’s commitment to working at the intersection of housing and health with Tierra Linda earned us the highest recognition with the Mission Award. Tierra Linda bridges sustainable, “green” technology and affordability for low-income residents and ultimately raises the bar for building developers and community organizations which are responsible for creating a holistic response to the healthy and affordable housing crisis by helping families find stable housing without compromising their health, safety, or the environment.

Thank you to the Illinois Green Alliance for recognizing LUCHA’s efforts to advance housing as a human right via sustainable and affordable housing!
