LCBH compiles bi-weekly foreclosure data in order to track recent multi-family building foreclosure filings in Chicago and provides comprehensive reports to 17 Chicago Community Areas. These reports provide crucial early warnings of buildings in foreclosure so community-based organizations can determine which buildings are fully occupied and take direct action to evaluate and preserve buildings. LCBH works hand-in-hand with these groups, providing education, counseling, legal advocacy, strategy and representation.
Lawyers' Committee for Better Housing (LCBH) has published several important reports to bring attention to the critical housing issues, including comprehensive annual reports on the foreclosure crisis. LCBH also distributes weekly foreclosure reports as part of an "Early Warning System" for tenant advocates to reach out to tenants in foreclosure.
