Making progress toward Housing Justice since 1972!


In 1972, Bobbie Raymond changed hearts and minds in her community when she founded the Housing Center. As Executive Director since September 2019, I may never fill her shoes but working together, we can all help “Move the Legacy Forward.”
On Saturday, October 22nd, please join the Oak Park Regional Housing Center as we mark 50 years of progress and achievement in fair housing, diverse community building, and more equitable housing solutions. 
We’re turning 50 and you’re invited to join us for a party with a purpose!
