About the Chesterfield Community

Chesterfield is a predominantly African-American neighborhood located on the South side of Chicago.  The area is comprised of older and younger residents who are participating in the growth and economic viability of this growing community.  Visitors are greeted with a well maintained area that exemplifies unity and strength.  There is a sense of stability and security to the neighborhood.

The organization is led by President Elizabeth Prowell, Board Chairman Eli H. Washington, and a dedicated and committed Board.

Purpose & Mission

What We Do

Intervenes on numerous complaints such as: Abandoned Homes, Abandoned Autos, Street Repair, Fraudulent Businesses and much more.
Committed to developing and promoting the black economic base. We support programs dedicated to assisting Black Entrepreneurs, Contractors, Developers and Job Creation.
Encourage community involvement in crime prevention. We support the Anti-Gang and Drug Programs and Community Policing Beat Meetings.
Until further notice, CCC will host monthly meetings every third Tuesday of the month virtually. Zoom credentials will be shared monthly in our newsletter and on our website. We will continue to meet with city, state and other elected officials to address the Council, along with leaders in the fields of health, business and education during this time. We look forward to returning to our in-person meetings after the pandemic has ceased.
Work to beautify the community. Each year, neighbors and community residents along with the support of local businesses, plant flowers to each corner along King Drive from 87th Street to 93rd Street.
