“Responding to the Need for Affordable Supportive Housing for Individuals with Mental Illness in North/Northwest Suburban Cook County”

Meyers Place

Myers Place opened in June 2013. Meyers Place offers 21 one-bedroom and 18 studio units of  permanent supportive housing. It is located at Busse, Dempster and Algonquin.  

Many of the residents, selected from a wait list of 300 individuals with special needs, are originally from Mount Prospect, Arlington Heights and Elk Grove Village. Units are handicapped accessible. Rent on individual units range from $800 to $850 with residents payments capped at approximately 30% of their income.   

On-site case management and social work services are  provided by the Kenneth Young center, one of our area’s community mental health centers.
