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.

I understand the strengths but also areas for growth within this organization. I have recently completed my MSW from the University of Michigan. My practice area is in community organization and I believe I have a lot to offer the board and CCCO. I have spent the last year with Chadsey Condon for my MSW field placement. Within the year I got to know the community and organization and I fell in love. Now that my time as a student is up, I want to continue to support Amanda, CCCO, and the community in what ever way I can.

Marlene Crow

What zone you represent: At-Large

When you joined the CCCO Board: 2018

Why you serve on the CCCO Board: I'm interested in helping CCCO continue to build capacity and in my area in Condon, many of the houses are rentals with currently low engagement. I'm interested in getting everyone who lives in Chadsey-Condon involved, because your home is your home, whether or not you own the house. On my block, I am particularly interested in coming up with a block-level plan which converts some of the empty lots into community spaces.

I have formal education in urban planning, community organizing, law, and anthropology- all good things for figuring out how to make spaces for people. Professionally, I have over 2 decades of project management experience. I have also been actively involved in neighborhood groups and events for decades. This has been in different cities, like Phoenix, Tuscon, Oakland (CA), Edinburgh, Detroit, and others. It has included a wide range of activities from publishing newspapers to starting a farmers market. I am very involved in sustainability and renovating old houses which have been abandoned. I recently helped CCCO get a grant for trees, which will provide 75-100 trees for our neighborhood.

Barbara Jawniak

What zone you represent: Zone 6

When you joined the CCCO Board: 2018

Why you serve on the CCCO Board: The Chadsey Condon organization has become an extremely valuable asset in our neighborhood community. It has brought interesting and informative topics to keep us informed and tools that have given us the opportunity for better quality of life. I would like to be part of this organization and its continued growth. I would like to serve my neighborhood but also our community-at-large working with others who have the same goals. I live in Detroit by choice. I went to elementary school in this neighborhood, high school in Detroit, married in a local church.

My parents never moved out of the area and weathered some of the difficult times in the city. I remember the beauty of our neighborhoods and strongly feel that we can experience that again. I volunteer for our local Dog Rescue Group in which I interview applicants for pets. These applicants are from all walks of life and various suburbs and I always seize the opportunity to promote Detroit. Fundraising is a necessity for a non-profit organization so I actively engage in raising those funds. I have participated in various programs for immigration reform with our local Michigan United Organization wherever and whenever I can I try to make a difference for our neighbors and Detroit.

What zone you represent: Member at Large

When you joined the CCCO Board: 2018

Why you serve on the CCCO Board: I believe in Chadey's mission and would like to be part of a unit that advocates and receives resources to transform the community. I don't live in the direct boundaries of CCCO and the neighborhood, but feel as though I have been part of the community for the 2 or 3 years because of my close relationship to CCCO and other agencies in Chadsey like communities and of course Munger Elementary where my daughter attends school. I would like to be a board member to help contribute to the continued involvement of the neighborhood and its residents. I have my MSW-Macro and have been practicing community organizing for 3 years. I have worked in Southwest Detroit communities for the past 3 years and have an understanding of the need of the communities and am knowledgeable about the resources available to address individual needs. Before community organizing, I worked in child welfare for nearly 8 years in the states of TN & MI. I have a passion for helping people and solving problems.
