Cindy M. Holler, Former President, Mercy Housing Lakefront


  • Wentworth Commons represents the first family-oriented facility for Mercy Housing Lakefront.
  • To create an eye-catching and innovative facade, brightly colored, locally produced masonry was applied, which contributed to Wentworth Commons becoming LEED Certified.
  • The Community Room and Lounge provide residents with areas to meet and hold special events while providing views to the outside.
  • Located in the Roseland Community of Chicago, Wentworth Commons provides 51 affordable residential apartments.
