Housing Solutions

Addressing Community Needs

The Ark compassionately offers a variety of housing solutions, ensuring everyone in our community has a place to call home.

A Range of Housing Solutions

At The Ark, we understand the critical importance of stable housing in the journey towards self-reliance. With the escalating challenge of accessing affordable housing in Chicago and surrounding suburbs, especially amidst rising rent prices, our primary goal remains to keep our clients in their homes, ensuring continuity of care and stability for their mental and emotional health.


Our Housing Program Manager, together with a Case Manager, conducts a thorough assessment to identify the best-suited housing solution for each individual or family, ranging from short-term to longer-term arrangements.

Sarnoff Levin Transitional Housing Program

This Sarnoff Levin Transitional Housing Program is designed to provide short-term housing solutions, assisting our clients in maintaining their social connections and minimizing disruptions to their daily lives.


If you are currently facing housing challenges and seeking support, please connect with your case manager. For those not yet working with a case manager, we invite you to contact us for an intake evaluation. Together, we can work towards finding the right housing solution for you, ensuring stability and a path towards a brighter future.
