South Suburban YMCA Senior Housing Center

178 E 155th St
Harvey, IL 60426


A 120 unit (one bedroom) apartment complex in Harvey, Illinois.

South Suburban YMCA Senior Housing Center opened its doors to seniors and non-elderly disabled residents in 1946 with 50 units and added another 70 units in 1982. The YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago is the managing agent of this property. The purpose of this equal opportunity housing facility is to provide affordable housing for very low and extremely low income elderly and disabled individuals and families through the Department of Housing and Urban Development's Section 202 Direct Loan and New Construction Section 8 programs.


Because of the HUD Section 202/8 subsidy program through which the property is funded, applicants must meet certain qualifications for admission to the Housing Center. Head of household, spouse, or co-head must be 62 years of age or older, or adults 18 and older with a disability (mobility impairment) requiring the features of an accessible unit may apply. Such individuals are only eligible for this specific unit type.

Particular income limits determined by the Department of HUD in accordance with the Section 202/8 program do apply. Those who qualify for this program type will pay 30% of his/her monthly income toward rent and utilities. Water, trash, sewer, recycling, utilities (excluding electricity and phone) are included in the rent. All 120 apartments are unfurnished one-bedroom units equipped with an air conditioner, refrigerator, and stove. Ten percent (12) of our apartments are handicapped/barrier-free units to some degree.

Other features include:

  • 24 hour security
  • 2 common area rooms (lounge and activity)
  • Computer Lab
  • On-site laundry facility
  • Free fitness privileges at partner YMCAs

All apartments require a one-year lease, which can be terminated with 30 days notice. A security deposit is required. Transient or short-term housing is not available at this location.
