Case Management • Job Readiness • Life Skills • Educational Support • Transitional Housing
Harmony Village is a transitional living program for homeless youth, ages 18-24. The program provides 28 safe, pleasant apartments in the same building with 24 hour supportive services staff. Most youth who reside in this program are homeless teen moms with their babies. Residents may reside in the program for up to two years and participate in intensive case management, work readiness, life skills and parenting education, preparing them for independent adulthood. Youth are also encouraged in this program to complete or advance their educational attainment while in this program. Over the years Harmony has helped many youth complete high school, trade school, and/or community college.

How to Apply
If you are experiencing homelessness and enrolled in any shelter or outreach program, you can ask the program staff if they can complete the Standardized Housing Assessment with you or link you to someone who can do so. This assessment records your current situation and needs so that you can be connected to a housing program, if eligible, when there is an opening. Housing programs range from transitional housing to short term rapid rehousing to permanent supportive housing. If you are not connected to any program you can drop by an access point to get connected to a Skilled Assessor who will complete this assessment with you and assist you in obtaining shelter if that is your goal.
You can also go to 10 S. Kedzie or call 311 from a hospital or police station to be connected to a shelter.
