Welcome to Take Root Chicago

Welcome to Take Root Chicago! The Take Root Chicago initiative is to assist in the stabilization of Chicago households and neighborhoods through a strategic media and advertising outreach campaign that links reputable housing intermediaries, and their resources to potential and existing homeowners for both homeownership opportunities and foreclosure intervention. This initiative is a cooperative effort between the Chicago Urban League along with Freddie Mac and a coalition of trusted participants whom represent local government, nonprofit housing counseling agencies, the local business community, realtors, lenders, and other reputable housing stakeholders.

From Margaret Wooten
