Help Expand Access to Housing for People with Records
Home is the cornerstone from which people build better lives for themselves and their families. People with arrest or criminal records, like everyone else, deserve a place to call home—but it can be almost impossible for them to find an apartment or house to rent.
The Just Housing Amendment became law on April 25, 2019! It creates equal access to housing opportunities in Cook County for people with records.
