Housing Our Own-Wilmette is a not-for-profit corporation dedicated to providing financial assistance to seniors citizens and persons with disabilities to ensure they can remain members of our community. To help defray the cost of living in Wilmette, our assistance programs provide the following financial assistance to those most in need:
- Property tax assistance - Up to $1,800 per year
- Rental assistance - Up to $225 per month
The program is 100% funded through private donations. As a result, we depend on the generous support of community organizations, the business community and individuals. Each year, Housing Our Own-Wilmette helps more than 20 Wilmette families stay in their homes and remain as contributing members of our community.
