ReVive Center for Housing and Healing has purchased the Royalton Hotel, a single-room occupancy (SRO) hotel located at 1810 W. Jackson Blvd. – just a blocks away from ReVive.
This is a monumental step for ReVive adding 98 units of affordable housing to the organization. The Royalton is complementary to ReVive’s permanent supportive housing program, Cressey House, enhancing our ability to fulfill our mission of ending homelessness in Chicago. We are committed to keeping the Royalton operating as an SRO providing housing for individuals who would otherwise be homeless.
SRO’s are an important housing option for very low income Chicagoans. Since 2008 more than 1/3 of the SRO’s in Chicago have closed – ultimately either being demolished or converted to more profitable market-rate apartments. On July 30 Chicago’s City Council enacted a temporary moratorium on demolition or conversion of SRO’s. ReVive is proud to join the movement to retain and maintain SRO’s.
