Charting Community Assets

Near West Side Community Directory
Fall 1997

The West Side Consortium, a coalition of 23 organizations and institutions on Chicago’s Near West Side, wanted to create a community directory of its members and their services. The objective was to inform all its members and Near West Side residents of the types of assistance they could find in their own community. The City Design Center interviewed representatives of the consortium member organizations and prepared a description of their activities and services for the planned resource directory.
