Hyde Park Neighborhood Club

Our mission

Hyde Park Neighborhood Club brings people together to strengthen the health, vitality, and sustainability of our diverse local community through programs and partnerships, with a particular focus on child and youth development.

Vision & Values


Hyde Park Neighborhood Club’s purposes and programs support our vibrant community while also respecting the anticipated needs of future generations.

Our creative and responsible actions promote social and racial justice and environmental stewardship. 

We prioritize equity and inclusion across all dimensions of our organization.

We demonstrate care for children, families and the wider community through quality programming and a commitment to excellence.


Land Acknowledgment

Hyde Park Neighborhood Club is committed to justice, equity, and inclusion. We therefore recognize the Native American presence on the land where our building is located. HPNC acknowledges it was built on the traditional homelands of the Illinois and Miami Nations and the Council of the Three Fires: The Potawatomi, Odawa, and Ojibwe Nations. We recognize that the region we now call Chicago was the traditional homeland of many Indigenous nations, and a crossroads and meeting place of many others. This land remains home to diverse Native people today. It was and remains Native land. 

Strategic Priorities


Provide a suite of high-quality programs that support and strengthen our local community and involve children, families and other residents in community life. Develop the resources and capacities to achieve excellence in every program.

Develop strategic partnerships that invite inclusive community participation and promote innovative contributions to community vitality.

Invest in our workforce to respect the talents and commitments of our teams, and in our infrastructure to provide a sound, healthy, well-resourced environment.

Secure a reliably sustainable financial future for our organization that can survive unpredictable stresses.

Develop a plan for financing and constructing a new facility, replacing our currently aging structure, to accommodate our bold vision and values, and provide a welcoming space for our community-building agenda.
