About Us

Hispanic Housing Development Corporation was organized as a nonprofit organization in 1975 to help create affordable housing in Chicago’s Latino neighborhoods. Over the subsequent 42 years, it has developed over 4200 homes, preserved more than 1700 affordable units, and served more than 7200 tenants. This represents $429 million in development of 54 distinct projects.


HHDC has developed a comprehensive, vertically integrated approach to create and maintain healthy communities. From housing development to construction, to property management and energy sustainability, HHDC works from the ground-up to build strong communities. Neighborhood construction and rehabilitation projects create economic opportunities for residents, and property managers help enhance the quality of life for residents while maintaining the properties' physical integrity.

HHDC has been led as CEO from its inception by Hipolito Roldan, a nationally respected community development leader and early recipient of a MacArthur Foundation “Genius Award”. He leads a staff which has grown to 178 employees, overseeing an annual budget of $7 Million. The Property Management Division is by far the largest division, with 149 of the 178 employees. The organization is governed by an 8 member board of directors with strong business leadership and professional skills.
