Posted by StreetWise in From The DirectorOn Sept. 1, StreetWise moved into a new office space. The move was precipitated by three key factors: 1) Financial benefit; 2) Collaboration opportunities; and 3) Client access. The agency chose a location at intersection of Wilson and Broadway in Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood after a citywide search that included participation by the StreetWise staff, board and clients.
The new office occupies a 3,600 square-foot 3rd floor suite in the southeast corner of the historic McJunkin Building, located at 4554 N. Broadway. The space met the agency’s three criteria by combining significant cost savings with the potential for new social service partnerships as well as more convenient access for clients. Most importantly, more space will allow StreetWise to deliver all the services currently offered, and more.
StreetWise has been warmly welcomed by the 46th Ward Alderman, James Cappleman, and is excited to join the network of social service providers within the Uptown community. StreetWise is especially pleased to be located across the hall from two outstanding agencies, Inspiration Corporation and LIFT. We hope that you will have an opportunity in the near future to visit us. We are located ¼ block from the Wilson CTA station and accessible from five major bus routes. Please stop in and say hello anytime you’re in the area.
