Greater Chatham, is a joyful, gifted determined state of mind.
A state of mind that can achieve ANYTHING.


The Greater Chatham Initiative was born from a comprehensive plan for economic growth and neighborhood vitality (The Plan). Our mission is to strategically invest (consistent with The Plan) in the Chicago communities of Auburn Gresham, Avalon Park, Chatham, and Greater Grand Crossing so they can re-emerge as communities of opportunity and choice.   Our Community is filled with a wealth of resources.  Please download the list ofcommunity resourcesavailable to you.

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.
