Who We Are

The Chicago Grand Neighbors Association (CGNA) is comprised of neighbors – your neighbors. Like you, they want a safer place for their kids to play and to walk their
dogs at night – A kept up neighborhood with clean streets and zoning that keeps
new homes and developments in keeping with the neighborhood – An easier way
to meet each other and to have a voice in their community. CGNA was formed to
provide a forum to accomplish all this – and more.

CGNA MAPAre you on our map? If you live within CGNA boundaries – Chicago, Damen, Ashland and Grand Avenues – please join us. It’s such a small commitment for such a rewarding experience of truly being part of a growing, thriving neighborhood.

    • CGNA says:

      Lyn Wolfson, President of CGNA has reached out to people to try to find out who owns the property and who was affected. She posted on CGNA Facebook page asking for volunteers to help organize how to help. One neighbor has volunteered to help find contact information and to help organize. Lyn will share with the community whatever she learns.

      CGNA is a community organization and it takes the participation of members of the community to help each other. The board is a governing body made up of volunteers who live in the community. It is people like you and all neighbors who must step up and help organize, help activate, participate in helping neighbors like the victims of this fire.
