Join HODC, Wilmette Village President Bob Bielinski, members of Jean Cleland's family, and other community leaders as we celebrate the start of construction on HODC's newest development, Cleland Place in Wilmette. This 16-unit affordable housing development will become home for working families, seniors, and veterans.

Named after Jean Cleland, the building is expected to open to tenants in late 2021. Jean Cleland was a former HODC board member and active community member in Wilmette. Her dedication to fair housing, her fellow human beings, and her family is a true inspiration. We aim to honor Jean with a well-built development, adding to and strengthening the community she loved.

Due to COVID, you are encouraged to join us live on our Facebook page.
