Our History

Renaissance Social Services, Inc. was established in 1997 to help low-income Chicagoans maintain their housing. The organization’s first units of supportive housing came from a partnership with The Renaissance Companies, a national property developer and manager. Through this collaboration, Renaissance was able to house clients, provide supportive social services, decrease residential turnover, and increase the stability of the building and community.


What began at one building has grown to become a citywide network of housing, behavioral health care and social services, uplifting more than 3,800 people in 2022.
