Trinity Services, Inc. Breaks Ground on Permanent Supportive Housing Development in Northlake

Jan 18, 2018

NORTHLAKE, IL — Trinity Services, Inc. officially broke ground on Trinity Park Vista, a permanent supportive housing development in Northlake, on Jan. 16.

The state-of-the-art apartment building will offer three floors and a total of 16 units for residents with disabilities, who will be offered subsidized rent.

Primarily, residents will live independently and have the option to receive support from Trinity Services staff members. Support may include assistance finding employment, help managing finances or occasional counseling services.

Three three-bedroom units will each provide space for one care provider and two people with developmental disabilities to live. These are known as shared living settings — environments in which care providers share their lives with the people they support.

The apartment building, which is planned for 1 E. Lakewood Terrace in Northlake, will be within walking distance of local businesses, providing job opportunities and convenience for future residents.

The modern, upscale building is being designed by Worn Jerabek Wiltse Architects, P.C., developed by Brush Hill Development, financed by the Illinois Housing Development Authority and constructed by Synergy Construction Group.

IHDA chose the apartment building’s location in Northlake based on assessed need for permanent supportive housing in the state of Illinois.

Representatives from all organizations involved with the development, as well as from the City of Northlake, were present at the groundbreaking ceremony.

Northlake Mayor Jeffrey Sherwin has been recognized by IHDA for his support of these types of residences. During the groundbreaking, Trinity Services President and CEO Thane Dykstra, Ph.D., also recognized Sherwin and all who were involved in the development for their enthusiasm about welcoming people with disabilities to the community.

Once constructed, Trinity Park Vista will become Trinity Services’ fifth permanent supportive housing development. Trinity provides services at similar developments in Villa Park, Lombard, Lockport and Sandwich, Illinois.

Through permanent supportive housing, dozens of people have been able to experience stronger independence and empowerment by having living space they can call their own.

Trinity Services, Inc. is a 68-year-old, nonsectarian, nonprofit organization dedicated to helping children and adults with developmental disabilities and mental illness flourish and live full and abundant lives. Trinity serves more than 3,500 people in more than 30 communities in northeast, central and southwest Illinois. To learn more, visit www.trinity-services.org.
