Shalom Plans to go Before City Commission

The Shalom Center continues to gain momentum in its journey for a permanent homeless shelter. The City Plan Commission is expected to vote on a conditional use permit on Thursday for the Shalom Center’s new facility, on 39th Ave. The permit request comes less than a month after the Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago denied the organization an $850,000 renovation grant through the Affordable Housing Program. Local supporters and organizations recently stepped forward with contributions over $100,000 to keep the project moving forward.
