About Us

Greater West Town Community Development Project seeks to build a community-based, collaborative response to the problems of unemployment and limited educational opportunities for the disadvantaged residents of Chicago's West Town, Humboldt Park, and Near West Side neighborhoods. Its goals are:

To develop programs which can serve as practical, model solutions to problems which limit the educational and economic opportunities of neighborhood residents.

To link the employment and training of neighborhood residents with economic development programs and the needs of area businesses.

To pursue research and advocacy activities which pose solutions to the problems which create barriers to educational and economic opportunities for area residents.
