Sankofa Safe Child Initiative and Interfaith Housing Development Corporation of Chicago partnered in 2006 to create much needed low income housing for special populations in North Lawndale. The apartments are targeted for youth between 18 to 23 who are aging out of the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) system and low income kinship families consisting of adults raising children of close family members. Sankofa Safe Child Initiative has offices onsite to provide supportive services and assist residents in establishing linkages to community resources.
