About Us

Housing Action Illinois believes that housing is a human right, and we believe in a society that promotes basic human needs, such as decent and safe housing, for all of its members. Our mission is to expand and preserve the supply of quality affordable and accessible housing in Illinois for low- and moderate-income households. Incorporated in 1986 as the Statewide Housing Action Coalition, we has over 160 organizational members statewide.


Housing Action has three program areas: Public Policy Advocacy; Public Education and Organizing; and Training and Technical Assistance. Whether through advocating for system change, or providing direct assistance to emerging or established housing counselors, developers, or homeless service providers, Housing Action aims to make sure that everyone in Illinois has an affordable, safe, accessible, stable place to call home.
