Happy Thanksgiving * Salute to Small Businesses

We’re not open Thanksgiving Day. We’re your neighborhood non-profit that prides itself on providing excellent community economic development, housing, education, technology, environmental and senior services, as well as a great staff to assist our residents and businesses, in the greater Auburn Gresham communities. 

So, we’ll be here when you need those services and other technical supports! We are truly thankful to be of service to the community.  In order to ensure we can continue to offer sustainable services and help bring new businesses into Auburn Gresham's SSA #32 and our Neighborhood Business Development Center (NBDC) Service Area, here’s something you can help us with.

Get excited about shopping this holiday season, on the south side of Chicago, SHOP SOUTH. On Small Business Saturday, plan to support your favorite small businesses. This coming November 29th is Small Business Saturday®, a day to celebrate and support the local small businesses that boost the economy and invigorate neighborhoods across the city and country.

We continue to be thankful for your continued support for the GADC's work in Auburn Gresham and our entire NBDC service area. Join us in this important SHOP SOUTH campaign. Be proud and thankful to support all the local independent entrepreneurs in our historical Chicago communities. Every dollar spent when you SHOP SOUTH, is an investment in the communities in which we live!
