Heartland Housing and Center on Halsted have announced that on Saturday, Jan. 13, 9 a.m.-3 p.m., the waiting list will open for Town Hall Apartments, the Midwest region's first LGBTQ-friendly, affordable senior housing development.
This is the first time the waiting list has been opened since the launch of Town Hall Apartments, located at 3600 N. Halsted St., in September 2014.
According to a press release from the Center on Halsted, "The need for LGBTQ-friendly senior housing was proven when Town Hall originally reached full occupancy within the first two weeks of opening in 2014. In addition, Heartland Housing received more than 400 applications during that first year.
"The announcement to open the waiting list has been greatly anticipated by the more than 50,000 LGBTQ seniors in Chicagoland, of which approximately one in five live in poverty."
The Center's Senior Program resides in the first floor of Town Hall, which used to be a police station.
Interested persons are urged to bring current and valid identification to register for the waiting list.
