I went to this “housing center” and signed up, waited, and a few people came in after me.
There was this single white chick who signed up as well (the same time I came in) and a black dude trying to fill out the paperwork (for two hours).
When it came to calling people to talk one on one about finding a place (of Course) the chick was called first after we both sat there for 45-minutes. As she was leaving I saw her Oak park area print out was of the inner Oak Park area, you know, Lake street and Ridgeland, tons of circles. I managed to see it because she was standing in our way talking on the phone about to her mum as it was our turn to go in!
When we were called and were rushed through (no sh*t) the process in about 15 minutes and given some crappy listings on Austin Avenue. Really?
The area that is borderline Chicago?
Who goes into a housing Center for Oak Park to be given listings basically in Chicago?
Well, we did not go back. Now fast forward, I get an email from them wanting to know how our search is doing “the information will help their non-profit” really? MONTHS LATER???
Plus they GAVE ME a DEADLINE to get back to them! LOL
Please pass this up and do the work.
I got me a better place on my own than with this place!
