We are a community-building organization of dedicated residents and allies working together to develop leaders and create opportunities and programs that build a vital Garfield Park community.  

The GPCC’s goals focus on renewing the community’s commercial corridors, spurring new housing investment, addressing public safety and wellness, and building connections between neighbors. Our programs integrate resident leadership and advocacy to ensure that community members lead neighborhood planning and renewal efforts.   Current work includes:
