Humboldt Park Residence (HPR) is a Single Room Occupancy (SRO) building for at-risk and formerly homeless individuals. HPR features supportive services, and rooms are fully furnished. Bathrooms are are shared between two units. LUCHA closed on HPR in September 1994 and soon after broke ground with Mayor Richard M. Daley in attendance. Built over the course of 1994 and 1995, the building serves a vital population of previously homeless or low-income individuals. With the loss of many SRO units throughout the city and encroaching gentrification from the east, HPR serves a critical need in the Humboldt Park neighborhood.
Amenities include community rooms for trainings, resident programming, as well as informal gatherings among tenants. Additionally, HPR also serves as the home of LUCHA’s Freddie Mac Borrower Help Center and houses both the Housing Counseling and Advocacy Program as well as LUCHA’s Supportive Services Counselor.
