Community Groups Back 'Neighborhood Heroes' Initiative



    Community Groups Back 'Neighborhood Heroes' Initiative

    There's strength in numbers. As Neighborhood Heroes launches across the Chicago area and northwest Indiana this summer, several community groups are supporting the initiative to make it a success.

    We're encouraging residents to make contributions to their neighborhoods in any way possible. Together, we hope to make our towns better places to live.
