HEARTLAND HOUSING IS ONE OF THE FIRST SUPPORTIVE HOUSING DEVELOPERS IN THE COUNTRY TO COMBINE DEVELOPMENT AND SUPPORTIVE SERVICES FOR RESIDENTS. OUR LEADERSHIP FOR OVER TWENTY-FIVE YEARS HAS EARNED US THE TRUST OF RESIDENTS AND COMMUNITIES ACROSS THE MIDWEST.

Heartland Housing strives to respond nimbly to the needs of the communities in which we work and to provide amenities and services that meet the needs of the residents of each unique building.  Depending on those needs, we are excited to develop projects incorporating a wide variety of housing types, from modern Single Room Occupancies that are a first step out of homelessness, to larger apartments with amenities for children for low-income families.  While our portfolio is centered in Chicago and Milwaukee, we are expanding to Madison, WI, suburban Chicago, northwest Indiana and beyond.
