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 Chatham, Greater Grand Crossing, Avalon Park, and Auburn Gresham so they can re-emerge as communities of opportunity and choice. Our Community is filled with a wealth of resources. Please download the list of community resources available 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.
