Englewood, Chicago

We’re excited to start our first village in the Englewood neighborhood of Chicago with the support of our community partners:

TARGET AREA

We are working with the community to locate and secure our first site while raising the funds to construct the housing and begin offering our services in the local community center.

OUR HOUSING

Bootstrap Villages Englewood, designed by Via Chicago, is a housing model of affordable, community-oriented, and ecofriendly housing to live, learn, and provide basic human needs. The small homes will be solar powered, built using natural materials, and provide the added value of fostering civic participation, shared responsibility, and allow the residents a feeling of “ownership” in their homes and in the surrounding neighborhood.

Additionally, it will have:

  • Walk-in closets, full-sized bathrooms, and first floor bedrooms
  • A partnership with P.E.A.C.E Center, a local community center with access to classrooms and other services such as laundry facilities
  • Green space for gardens and outdoor activities
  • Opportunities for recreation, education, and socialization outside work hours
