About Ravenswood Senior Living
Ravenswood Senior Living is a new 100% affordable continuum of care building, which will serve low-income seniors by providing options independent living with rental assistance from Chicago Housing Authority, or a supportive living program with funding from Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services. This is a first-of-its-kind development in Illinois. Our local elected officials, notably Senator Sara Feigenholtz, made it possible with a bill that allows both facilities to operate in the same building. We are excited for their anticipated opening this summer!
