WHO WE ARE
The Archer Heights Civic Association (AHCA) is an all volunteer, nonprofit, non-political group of homeowners, renters, businessmen and women and industry united by the common bond of keeping the neighborhood safe for all residents, protecting the property values of the community and addressing any major issues which affect the quality of life in our neighborhood. As such, our civic association is very active in matters involving building code compliance, property zoning, beautification and crime prevention. We work with the 8 th Police District and the Chicago Alternative Policing Strategy (CAPS) to publicize procedures and programs of crime prevention, homeowner, renter and business safety, and also personal safety.
