Quality of Life Plan

Through a partnership with Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) – Chicago and over 20 other community organizations, local agencies and businesses, The NWSHC is helping to create a Quality of Life Plan for the Belmont-Cragin neighborhood.

“Quality-of-life planning” brings together local residents, schools, churches, businesses, service organizations, and other community stakeholders to create a long-term vision for the neighborhood, building on the specific strengths of that community.

The Belmont-Cragin Quality of Life Plan focus on five issue areas: Affordable Housing, Economic Development, Youth Development, Education and Healthcare. Each issue area group meets monthly and the larger Quality of Life Plan steering committee meets monthly.
