Saint Leonard’s House

Saint Leonard’s House provides interim housing and supportive services for formerly incarcerated men returning to the community from Illinois prisons. Residents are as broadly diverse as the neighborhoods from which they come. Program participants come to Saint Leonard’s House to find a safe environment in which they can develop skills to rebuild their lives and reshape their futures.

Saint Leonard’s Ministries does not charge residents and program participants for any services. Residents and program participants can focus on healing and their return to our communities.


Saint Leonard’s House, which opened its doors in 1954, currently occupies two buildings, located at 2100 and 2110 W. Warren Blvd on Chicago’s Near West Side. Twenty-five residents are housed in one building and fifteen in the other. Residents’ rooms range from six-person occupancy to single-resident rooms. On-site amenities in the buildings include a library, a chapel, recreation rooms, a weight room, and a laundry room with free washers and dryers. Three meals a day are served in the Saint Leonard’s House dining room. Special events, holiday activities, and large group gatherings are also held in the dining room.
