CHICAGO, July 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Associa Chicagoland, a leading provider of community management services throughout Illinois and Northwest Indiana, recently partnered with Associa Cares, the community management industry’s leading charitable organization, to provide financial assistance to 55 families from Chicago’s Woodridge Club Condominiums who were displaced by a tornado. Associa Cares is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping families and communities in need as a result of natural and man-made disasters. Many of those receiving assistance lost all of their belongings.
On June 20, 2021, a powerful tornado destroyed or damaged several of the community’s units and buildings. Although Woodridge Club’s insurance covered most repairs, it did not pay for lost or damaged personal possessions or temporary housing. As a result, many affected homeowners have struggled to rebuild and 24 families have yet to return home. In response, Associa Chicagoland and Associa Cares partnered with Woodridge Club’s property management firm, MC Property Management, and the association’s board of directors to provide the affected families with financial assistance to help ease their burden.
“I am incredibly proud to be part of this effort to provide families with the financial relief they badly need,” said Stephanie Skelley, CMCA®, AMS®, Chicagoland president. “It is heartwarming to see team members from Associa Chicagoland, the Woodridge Club Condominium board of directors, and different management companies put their competitive differences aside and come together in the spirit of helping others in need.”
