The Neighborhood Council is a partnership between all the organizations in a given neighborhood who get together in a spirit of cooperation. Its goal is to improve the conditions of poor neighborhoods and to make good neighborhoods even better. The Albany Park Community Council is one such example, located in Chicago in the Albany Park area. The neighborhood leaders use their skills and imagination toward coordinated efforts in the fields of planning for the health, recreation, education, and the social welfare of neighbors.
