|About the Beneficiaries|

organization serving the Lakeview community on the north side of
Chicago, Illinois. It's boundaries (roughly Lake Michigan on the east,
the north branch of the Chicago River on the west, Diversey Parkway on
the south, going south on Lakewood Avenue until it meets the Chicago
River, and Irving Park Road on the north) are approximately those of the
original township of Lake View founded in the early 1800's and annexed
by the City of Chicago in 1903.
We have been working for you in Lake View since 1952. We are a grassroots membership organization made up of people like you and your neighbors. LVCC was established to provide citizens in Lake View with the opportunity to work together for the common good of the Lake View community.
