The Renaissance Collaborative, Inc. (TRC) is one of largest social impact organizations operating on the City of Chicago’s South Side. TRC serves over 1,000 low-income individuals and families annually by delivering safe, quality affordable housing and workforce development programs.
TRC builds new developments, and acquires and rehabilitates existing housing. Currently TRC developments are located at 3757 S. Wabash and 346 East 53rd Street in historic Bronzeville.
In order to support and enhance the economic health of our region’s business community, TRC delivers a prepared workforce through our transitional and industry-specific job placement programs such as our Bronzeville Green Organic Landscaping initiative and our customer service desk clerk training program.
TRC currently owns and manages over 170 units of affordable housing in the Bronzeville area.
Recognizing that shelter alone is not sufficient for residents’ success and well-being, The Renaissance Collaborative offers Resident Services at all of our properties. Resident Services are critical to creating a stable foundation where residents can explore their potential, remove barriers to self-sufficiency and access onsite services such as health classes, financial education, literacy programming and employment initiatives.
This comprehensive network of programming is one of TRC’s many unique assets that helps close the gap between the supply and demand for affordable housing and delivers a prepared workforce.
