The Housing Center assists prospective renters in their search to find housing in the Oak Park area. Federal and local laws provide apartment seekers the freedom to pursue the housing of one’s choice. We encourage our clients to consider the full range of housing opportunities throughout Oak Park, especially those that contribute to racial integration. We give listings to prospective renters based on their registration criteria and in accordance with our mission.

Our service is free. The Housing Center is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that does not own or manage buildings nor do we act as a licensed agent for any property owner or manager. However, we work with the majority of landlords in the area and have listings of a large number of available apartments and homes as well as the details of those available units for rent.

Those searching for units in Oak Park find our model is the most efficient way to find the right apartment for you. Rather than make numerous appointments over many days, we streamline the process. In fact, we have clients who find the perfect apartment within hours of registering with us.
