You can be a part of the solution for ending homelessness for your neighbors in Chicago!
With Chicago Rents, you will have a Landlord Engagement Coordinator help onboard your units, advertise your units free of charge, and assist you throughout the tenancy.
Chicago Rents can provide financial incentives for qualifying units in tight rental markets. Please contact your Landlord Engagement Coordinator to learn more and find out if your units are eligible.
If you successfully refer a colleague to work with Chicago Rents, you will be entered in a quarterly raffle to win a $50 gift card! To be entered, the successful referral must note that you referred them, onboard with us, and have one unit available to be shown at an Accelerated Moving Event (AME).

Above all, I think the staff at All Chicago, particularly Erik, Susanna, and Hal have been welcoming and super helpful to navigate around the issues that come up. They have always tried to work through problems that arise in a fair and respectful fashion. They have allowed our business to help owners who want to keep units occupied and invest in the greater mission of ending homelessness. One unit at a time!
Chicago Rents keeps me well-informed with updates as they occur, and they are very responsive to any questions or concerns around the process. I especially look forward to the Advisory Council meetings. It’s an opportunity to learn from others and provide feedback to Chicago Rents. All Chicago is an excellent organization to work with and I would recommend it to others interested in working with them.
