Site-based Permanent Supportive Housing

New Moms’ new Oak Park location opened on March 15th, 2019.

The first floor of New Moms Oak Park building includes office space for staff, meetings, and educational programs.  The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floors have 18 beautifully designed one and two bedroom apartments, dedicated for young families. The residential side of the building has been named Clare Place, in honor of a generous contribution from the Wheaton Franciscan Sisters.  The name Clare Place was inspired by St. Clare of Assisi who devoted her life to the Franciscan values of respect, compassion, service, and integrity, among others.

Clare Place apartments at New Moms in Oak Park are permanent supportive units.  Once families are housed, they can stay as long as needed to achieve long-term stability.  Similar to New Moms apartments in Chicago, Clare Place residents will be offered housing, coaching and supportive services focused on education, employment, life skills, health, and well-being.
