mission

Build a community among our neighborhoods.

We break down barriers, borders and boundaries in order to build a community for all on the Southwest Side of Chicago.

We connect young families with the things they need, via our Freebies for Families events.

 

We connect small businesses to each other, and to free resources to level the playing field among an area rife with corporate chains. 

 

We publish all information in dual languages, so no one is left out.

 

If a wall stands in our way, we'll break it down.

something new for the sw side

The Collective is a collection of groups dedicated to specific initiatives on the southwest side of Chicago. 

 

Our groups meet monthly to tackle issues like development, crime and placemaking. 

 

If you want to make a difference in your Midway-area neighborhood, but aren't sure where to start...you're in the right place.
