Greater Chatham Initiative or GCI, started in 2017, is an organization of local residents and business owners working together to restore the health and strength of our Greater Chatham area. We’re building Greater Chatham into the community it’s meant to be:

A place where we’re happy to raise families, build businesses, refresh our bodies and souls. We’re immensely grateful to everyone who is making that happen by sharing their expertise and financial resources. Together, we are welcoming Greater Chatham home again.
