Today, 40 Acres is the jewel of the neighborhood and home to The Guild Theater, Underground Books, Old Soul Coffee Co., World Class Faders, Fixins Soul Kitchen, and the Upper Room Apartments. This year, 40 Acres is currently undergoing a second set of improvements including paint, awnings, signage, window plant boxes, and more!

St. HOPE is excited to have a new home located on the corner of Broadway and Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.  The the newly renovated space consists of offices, several work stations, a kitchen and flex space for our team of back office employees. 


Esther’s Park

The 3rd Avenue lot near St. HOPE’s 40 Acres Complex was once the site of Esther’s Pastry Shoppe, a two-story mixed use building constructed in 1915 that provided Oak Park residents with freshly baked goods through much of the 1900’s.  By the time the historic building was acquired by St. HOPE Development Company in the late 1990’s, it was in a state of disrepair and in need of major funding before it could be restored.  In 2018, the badly deteriorated building was deemed uninhabitable and was therefore demolished.


3400 Third Ave

3400 Third Ave. which once housed the St. HOPE Home Office, Students First, Teach For America and City Year has now become the new home for Valley Vision, Inc.  

The 4,000 sf facility was renovated in 2018 by St. HOPE Development Company with both internal and external upgrades.
