HODC is pleased to announce the expansion of its service coordination with the addition of three DePaul University students who will be assisting at two suburban supportive housing developments. As interns, the students will assist Teandra G. Delancy, MSW, MPPA, a Service Coordinator at HODC, who serves Myers Place in Mount Prospect and PhilHaven in Wheeling. Teandra’s responsibilities bridge residents’ physical and mental health needs with their case managers to provide a continuum of care for active, independent living for residents.

Graduate students Bonnie, Lydia and Michael are studying nursing at DePaul University and will rotate between Myers Place and PhilHaven weekly. They are eager and enthusiastic to begin providing nutrition counseling, teaching yoga, and instructing residents on how to use the equipment in each building’s workout rooms.

HODC’s mission is to develop, manage, and preserve the stock of housing that is affordable to low- and moderate-income households primarily throughout Chicago’s north and northwest suburbs. Our developments support families, senior citizens and those with disabilities. HODC also provides housing counseling for home ownership, property management, and service coordination for those in low- to moderate- income developments.
