HUMBOLDT PARK —  New housing for the homeless, and a community center aimed at helping some 2,000 people per year, is part of a huge project underway by La Casa Norte, a Humboldt Park-based nonprofit group.

The community-focused organization wants to provide services to the homeless while building on West North Avenue in an area that has not seen significant investment in years.

“It’s really exciting because that part of North Avenue and the western part of Humboldt Park has not seen a lot of recent development in the past decade,” said Sol Flores, executive director of La Casa Norte.
