On Wednesday, August 24, ALSO hosted a Community Meet ‘n Greet to get to know our neighbors. ALSO staff conducted targeted outreach to businesses and organizations on North Avenue and Western Avenue. We strongly believe that forming and maintaining meaningful community connections increases safety so we created an opportunity for our community to come together and build relationships.
Thank you to all of the businesses, organizations, and community residents who attended the Community Meet ‘n Greet including representatives from:
Access Chicago Realty
An Orange Moon
Bickerdike Redevelopment Corporation
Cup and Spoon
Division Street Business Development Association
Gilda-Designer Thrift Boutique

St. Joseph Services
Tom Robinson Gallery
We’d also like to extend a special thanks to the Division Street Business Development Association for use of the space, West on North for heavy appetizers, Cermak Produce and Jay’s Beef for food donations, and Mike “Eddy” Williams for photographing the event.
We look forward to strengthening connections made at the Meet ‘n Greet and continuing to build relationships for ourselves and our neighbors in the community. View pictures from the event.
