  A Message From Our Executive Director/CEO…

Lake County Housing Authority (LCHA) is working to change the face of public housing in Lake County, IL.  As one of the leading housing authorities in Illinois, our Agency provides housing and housing related services, for over 11,000 citizens of Lake County.

We provide safe, decent and sanitary housing for the most vulnerable members of our community. LCHA also provides so much more than housing.  We offer individuals, families and seniors a foundation from which to build successful lives, inspiring investment in self and community through our housing opportunities and programs. We are there for those who need support, and for those who wish to transform their future.

Our team consists of dedicated management and housing professionals. With the continued leadership and assistance of our Board of Commissioners, we remain confident and excited about the opportunities we are able to offer to the community.  LCHA continues to play a vital role in maintaining the health of our community by building strong public and private partnerships, maintaining a high standard of property maintenance, and helping low-income families move toward economic self-sufficiency. 

I believe our future success depends on our willingness to offer our very best to the public as professionals who can demonstrate that they care about people and the community in which they live, work and play! Although we have challenges, we have a much brighter future. We must all come together - residents, staff, governments, businesses, partners, developers and other stakeholders in our mission/commitment to serve the Lake County community with housing opportunities and options.  

At LCHA, we are committed to Service Above All Else, and we believe it shows in everything we do.  We look forward to continuing to serve the community, and to helping each resident thrive.

Olmstead Class – State Referral Network

Lake County Housing Authority is proud to be a participating agency in assisting the State of Illinois’ efforts with State wide housing for long term care reform. We are able to assist the State to comply with Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504), and the Supreme Court’s decision in the Olmstead case. 

We have established preferences for the Olmstead class members as well as persons transitioning from State Operated Developmental Centers (SODCs). The target population includes Illinois’ Money Follows the Person (MFP) enrollees. 

This was a coordinated process between HUD, both in Headquarters and in the Region to determine how best to secure affordable, integrated housing opportunities for persons with disabilities transitioning from institutional settings in the State of Illinois. 

If you feel you are an eligible class member, please contact Lore Baker. She is the State-wide housing and employment first coordinator with the Illinois Department of Human Services. Lore.Baker@illinois.gov. Referrals must come directly from Ms. Baker.
