Friedman Place is a non-profit Supportive Living Community for blind and visually impaired adults in Chicago. Our building has been designed with the needs of the blind and visually impaired in mind. Each resident has a private studio or one-bedroom apartment, with a kitchenette and bathroom. A full range of services and activities is provided so that residents’ days are healthy, dignified, and stimulating.
