About the Chadsey Condon Community Organization:

The Chadsey-Condon Community Organization (CCCO) was launched in 2006 with the goal of transforming the lives of residents in our neighborhoods by strengthening and renewing the places they live, learn, work, and play and ensuring that they will have the opportunity to thrive in the community. We believe that resident engagement and leadership is critical to sustained, large-scale change in our community. Our work is anchored in a community partnership process. For Full Information you can download our General Flier in english HERE, and in Spanish HERE Or see below.

The Chadsey Condon Neighborhood has ten zones that have been created to help you connect with your neighbors and allow you the opportunity to contribute to projects and improvements close to home and to develop block clubs to address key issues in your neighborhood.
