WPD Management, a property management company operating throughout the South Side of Chicago, launched WPD Cares. The initiative aims to give back to residents, communities served and employees.
“We’ve seen the impact the pandemic has had and wanted to create a more formal approach to the frequency, programming and support offered to our residents,” said Patrick Ryan, COO of WPD Management.
WPD Management serves as property management to more than 3,000 residents and kicked off 2021 by providing $10,000 in rent credit to residents in need.
“When we mentioned the rent credit initiative to our client Goldman Investments, they contributed an additional $10,000 to residents living in the buildings we manage for them,” said Ryan. “We also received $2,000 from Kiser Group as part of their year-long initiative to give back to struggling renters.”
