A Message from the ED/CEO


Lake County Housing Authority (LCHA) is working to change the face of public housing in Lake County, IL. As one of the leading housing authorities in the state, our Agency provides housing and housing related services, for over 13,000 citizens of Lake County.

We provide safe, decent and sanitary housing for the most vulnerable members of our community. LCHA also provides so much more than housing. We offer individuals, families, and senior citizens a foundation from which to build successful lives and inspiring investment in self and community through our housing opportunities and programs. We are there for those who need support, and for those who wish to transform their future.

Our team consists of dedicated management and housing professionals. With the continued leadership and assistance of our Board of Commissioners, we remain confident and excited about the opportunities we are able to offer to the community. LCHA continues to play a vital role in maintaining the health of our community by building strong public and private partnerships, maintaining a high standard of property maintenance, and helping low-income families move toward economic self-sufficiency.

I believe our future success depends on our willingness to offer our very best to the public as professionals who can demonstrate that they care about people and the community in which they live, work and play! Although we have challenges, we have a much brighter future. We must all come together – residents, staff, governments, businesses, partners, developers, and other stakeholders in our mission/commitment to serve the Lake County community with housing opportunities and options.

At LCHA, we are committed to “Our Residents”, and we believe it shows in everything we do. We look forward to continuing to serve the community, and to helping each resident thrive.
