It has been an exciting past few months for POAH.  We are honored that the Grant at Woodlawn Park, the second phase of our work in Chicago's Woodlawn neighborhood, was selected as the overall winner and master-planned winner in Affordable Housing Finance magazine's 2014 Readers' Choice Awards.  In August, we were fortunate to welcome HUD Secretary Julian Castro to Woodlawn for the celebration of the next phase of revitalization with the groundbreaking of two new developments - the Burnham, a 65-unit senior development and Metrosquash's youth and family center - both located directly across from the Grant.  Both developments will provide a strong foundation for a healthy neighborhood that provides opportunities for all at each stage of life.
