Housing Counseling - WAIT LIST CLOSED


As of August 2020 our housing wait list is CLOSED. We are no longer accepting applicants.

Housing counseling is only available to consumers who were on Access Living’s wait list before August of 2020. If you are not already on our wait list and are seeking housing services, please go to the HUD website to look for alternative services.

Access Living is a Center for Independent Living (CIL) that serves people with disabilities in Chicago. If you are located in another part of Illinois or in a different state, you will need to contact your local CIL for services. You can find the address and contact information for your local CIL here.
