News and Reports

Learn about the work we do and the issues we face.

Lawyers' Committee for Better Housing (LCBH) publishes a newsletter: The Scoop (formerly Housing Briefs). Our newsletter delivers original articles written by our staff, interns and volunteers. With each issue we strive to include informative stories about the work we do on behalf of Chicago renters and the issues renters face.

It is easy to take for granted the powerful role that home plays in our daily lives. Housing stability is connected to better health, better education, and social and mental wellness that nurture success and a sense of well‑being. Right now, right here in Chicago, thousands of families are struggling with housing issues. We invite you to read some of our renters’ stories that show how LCBH and your support have benefited their lives and our communities. We know you appreciate how important having a safe and stable home is to thriving in our lives and in our communities.
