Featherfist provides housing and supportive services to the homeless community throughout Chicago and neighboring suburbs. It offers services in the core areas of case management, locating housing, and veterans' services. In addition, Featherfist provides social services as senior housing development throughout Illinois. Prospective clients meet with a case manager to complete an assessment, after which a service plan will be made that addresses barriers to housing and prepares the client for a move into permanent housing. Factors to determine if the client needs subsidized or affordable housing include the number of family members, current income and barriers to housing. Case management continues through the housing process and for as long as the household needs support.
