Established in 1944, the Chamber has undergone several names changes along the way but, like now, always there to offer assistance and resources to businesses in the Cragin, Hermosa, Humboldt Park,

and N. Austin communities. The fabric of these neighborhoods is a richly woven tapestry of the productivity and diversity of its residents.
