Skyline Village Chicago
Skyline Village Chicago was formed by a group of neighbors who came together to create an organization to help people create and sustain social connections and to harness the resources of the community to meet their current and future needs. As reflected in its name, the Near North Side neighborhood in Chicago is dominated by high rises. Many of the older people who live there are transplants from suburbs where they raised their families, or are retired singles (mostly women). Skyline is incorporated as a non-profit, with a growing membership. They have an active events calendar reflecting the interests of their membership, and a volunteer program designed to reach out to members when they need help.
