Dragon with C4C Executive Director Dennis O’Neill, University Village resident Mary Vega, and C4C Director of Community Outreach Nancy Plax.

Connecting 4 Communities (C4C) is a community organization in Chicago joining and representing four sub-communities – Little Italy, University Village & Commons, Roosevelt Square & Brooks Homes, and Tri-Taylor with a service area bounded by Western Avenue to the west, the Dan Ryan Expressway to the east, the Eisenhower Expressway to the north, and 16th Street to the south.

The C4C mission is to build a vibrant and effective community by offering an organizing vehicle to connect people of like minds together who want to have a positive impact on issues of mutual concern.

C4C is an “organizing vehicle” created by and for community members focusing on the improvement of public education in the community and ensuring that Roosevelt Square–one of the nation’s largest, most incomplete redevelopments of federal public housing–is developed effectively.

PLEASE keep up to date on important issues and happenings that C4C is working on and supporting. You can sign up for the organization’s e-newsletter at www.connecting4communities.org
