At this informal holiday season event, you are welcome for a little while or stay for the duration. We’ll also make a special announcement to allies present about the formation of a community land trust dedicated to the permanent affordability of multi-unit rental and shared equity housing. Let’s celebrate and make history together.


We’re meeting with friends and supporters like you, providing them personalized updates on Voice’s challenges and plans. If you haven’t signed up yet as a Sweet Home Uptown 2023 host or sponsor, let’s talk. This year we’re honoring Helen Shiller, Maurice Hamp, Voice’s President and leader of the last decade, and Chicago’s dynamic couple of affordable housing — Peter and Jackie Taylor Holsten. It’s a live, blues-themed and in person event at the “New” Double Door, February 2nd, 6-9 pm, 1050 W Wilson Avenue.
