WACA (The Westside Association For Community Action) is a community-based, social service agency that has provided a wide range of critical services to residents within the North Lawndale, Austin, Brighton Park, and Garfield communities for over 40 years. Founded in 1971, and located on Chicago’s Westside, their mission has been to identify and alleviate problems that contribute to the disintegration of its communal fabric. Within their multi-service community-based network, they work diligently to increase the strength of family ties, while maintaining and developing important bi-partisan relationships. This is done while expanding their local, state, and national networks of community-based providers committed to working with at-risk youth by offering positive alternatives to negligent lifestyle.
