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.
