HODC Cuts the Ribbon!

Group of men and women smile as they look at two men holding oversized scissors and are ready to cut a large red ribbon held by two other men. They are all under a large white tent.

On May 20, 2022, HODC celebrated our new permanent home in Skokie and Affordable Housing Awareness Month.

The Ribbon Cutting Ceremony featured special guest George Van Dusen, Mayor of Skokie, and was emceed by Howard Meyer, President and CEO of the Skokie Chamber of Commerce and Industry. President of the HODC’s Board of Directors, William Sholten, and HODC tenant Zuanetta Ratliff also spoke. Attendees had the opportunity to win gifts and gift cards donated by local business, feast on treats from Skokie’s Kneads & Wants, tour HODC’s offices, and meet our staff.
