Bickerdike Redevelopment Corporation is proudly celebrating its 50th Anniversary as a community development organization.
In recognition of this milestone, Bickerdike will host its 50th Anniversary Celebration Dinner on May 17, 2018 at the Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel where over 300 leaders in the real estate, business, civic, government, policy and philanthropic communities will gather to support our service to families and communities. The event will highlight our commitment to our mission of redeveloping West Town, Humboldt Park, Logan Square, Hermosa and Avondale for the benefit of and control by low and moderate-income residents who live there.

Bickerdike’s work impacts countless low and moderate-income families ensuring they have access to affordable housing, job opportunities, and the skills and resources for their voices to be heard.
