This past Friday, Housing Forward — the Maywood-based nonprofit that provides resources to people going through housing-related crises — held an open house and ribbon-cutting to formally mark the opening of their new Oak Park office, located on the second floor of 6634 W. Roosevelt Road. 

The nonprofit will provide emergency financial assistance and job placement assistance services, among others, at the office, which will also host the Entry Point Walk-In Center, providing "in-person comprehensive intake and referrals for those experiencing a housing crisis," according to the statement released.

State Sen. Don Harmon (39th) and state reps. La Shawn K. Ford (8th) and Camille Lilly (78th) were on hand to celebrate the opening. 

"In the 8th District, homelessness is such an issue," said Harmon. "And being so close to Chicago, it's important to have an organization like Housing Forward that is easy to locate to provide necessary services to so many at risk."
