LifeHouse Group’s facility in Dixmoor, Illinois, provides transitional housing for our residents. Incoming residents initially live within our quarantine area, featuring six bedrooms with an isolated kitchen, dining area, lounge, exercise equipment, and computer with internet access. After clearing quarantine, residents move to one of four separate residential wings. These wings feature residential kitchenettes, living and dining areas. Each wing maintains eight to 10 shower stalls and six to eight bathroom stalls. All four wings share an outdoor recreational area with space for seating, walking and sports, and the four separate residential areas are designed to encourage smaller, supportive communities for the residents. Anyone entering the facility passes through a secure reception area.
From the time they enter our facility, residents are strongly encouraged to develop their permanent housing plans. LifeHouse Group works with various agencies and landlords to help residents find permanent housing, provides access to public assistance programs, and offers references and recommendations for those residents who earn them. We also work to build bridges between residents and their family members, encouraging residents to create a support system that can benefit them for years to come.
