This case study describes a nonprofit affordable housing development project that received an award from Fannie Mae Foundation's Maxwell Awards of Excellence Program for the Production of Low-Income Housing. In this study, a special-needs housing project from Round Ten (1998), The Century Place Development Corporation, transformed a vacant building in Southside Chicago that harbored gangs and drugs into Karibuni Place, a safe, permanent housing for 72 homeless adults, many of whom are elderly and/or veterans. The case study tells about the affordability, development process, design/construction, community involvement, social services, empowerment, community development impact, and financing of the project.
