To keep up to date on the activities of the West Cook County Housing Collaborative (WCCHC), view homes for sale and learn about transit-oriented development opportunities visit the organization’s new website, www.westcookhousing.org. From its beginning in 2009, the WCCHC, which is a joint effort of Bellwood, Berwyn, Forest Park, Maywood and Oak Park, has worked to expand housing opportunities and strengthen neighborhoods in west suburban Cook County. The collaboration was formed in response to the housing foreclosure crisis. Recognizing the value of collaboration, the WCCHC communities have continued working together to transform distressed properties into quality, affordable homeownership opportunities and rental housing options.
