The Resurrection Project

In my various explorations throughout social media (Twitter, Facebook, Pilsen Portal, etc.) I invariably come across positive accounts of The Resurrection Project's (TRP) initiatives in the neighborhoods of Pilsen, Little Village, and Back of the Yards. Most of these accounts come directly from TRP itself or organizations associated to TRP.

I have no doubt that TRP is doing good work in the community, but I'm finding it difficult to get objective viewpoints through the usual channels. I want to hear from people who have had direct experiences with this organization without the spin. I want to know what this organization does well and where it falls short.

  • My concern stems from the development going up on Damen, just north of 18th. I believe it will be called Casa Querétaro. I'm concerned that the development may be out of character for the area. Additionally, what kind of resources do they have for managing a building of 49 units....

    My concern stems from the development going up on Damen, just north of 18th. I believe it will be called Casa Querétaro. I'm concerned that the development may be out of character for the area. Additionally, what kind of resources do they have for managing a building of 49 units. I've checked some of their buildings for violations on the city's website. The new complexes don't have violations, but a lot of the older ones do.

    Thus, I want to hear from folks that have lived in housing managed by TRP. Are the buildings well run, are they slumlords, what is their screening process for selecting future tenants? Many of my friends may be interested and they have raised all of the above issues. I want 1st hand accounts from folks who have had positive/negative experiences with TRP.

  • Yes! Help out in this endevor.
