Chicago Area Project


Overview of CO

The Community Organizing (CO) is directly involved with community development, which is the ultimate goal of all CAP-funded programs. This is the historic objective established by CAP founder Clifford R. Shaw.

CO provides primary organizing assistance to targeted new and existing neighborhood residents and groups; is the lead organizer for agency expansion efforts; and facilitates the development of local, city, and state-wide joint-venture collaborations/partnerships. Offering effective assistance in organizing local residents and identifying local leadership remains central to the CO’s central mission. In this way, communities can take ownership of their own empowerment and its maintenance.
