(Updated July 1, 2020)


To continue our commitment to the communities we serve, CCHE’s The Village located at 1525 E. 55th St. Suite 205 will be open Monday to Friday from 12 pm until 6 pm.


A team member will be onsite to help connect you to remote resources and answer any questions you might have. We will be closed on the weekend and are not offering any in-person services at this time. All trainings and community programming/events are also cancelled until further notice.


In Alignment with stage 4 of  the Governor’s strategy to reopen we are allowing a limited number of people in our space at a time (Masks required) and are operating on appointment bases only. In Addition to out in person efforts we are providing a COVID-19 Hotline number. 


Starting 7/6 all services, except groups and in-person research are going to resume, testing will be on appointment bases to limit the number of people in the waiting room.


Please call or text our Village COVID-19 hotline number at 708-872-5395 if you have any questions or need resources.
