Ruth Shriman House
4040 N. Sheridan Road
Chicago, IL 60613

Ruth Shriman House serves senior citizens whose access to affordable housing was jeopardized by gentrification in the Lakeview and Uptown communities on the north side of Chicago. Interfaith Housing's chief neighborhood partner, the Jane Addams Senior Caucus, mobilized local seniors to advance this project (they even enrolled in architecture classes at the University of Illinois in order to work more closely with the building's architect).
