About Lathrop Homes

Lathrop Homes, a Chicago Housing Authority site across the river in Hamlin Park, has long been involved in the Logan Square Neighborhood Association and has been a steady partner to LSNA, through the membership of Schneider Elementary School and Church of the Good News, both located adjacent to Lathrop Homes. Lathrop Homes is currently the only CHA development whose future is still officially considered "to be determined."
