North West Housing Partnership


BRicK Partners is excited to partner with the North West Housing Partnership on the successful CAPABLE project.  CAPABLE, based on a program developed by Johns Hopkins University, combines the services of a nurse, occupational therapist, and handyperson to identify and resolve barriers to living independently.  The North West Housing Partnership administers the program and BRicK Partners provides technical assistance to CAPABLE.  The initial two years of CAPABLE concluded in December 2020, and we are grateful that the Retirement Research Foundation stepped up to support another year of the initiative.  CAPABLE serves individuals over 65 years of age living in Arlington Heights, Buffalo Grove, Des Plaines, Mount Prospect, Palatine, Rolling Meadows, and all areas in Wheeling and Palatine Townships.
