North Beverly is, in reality, part of Auburn Gresham.  Auburn Gresham is one of the seventy-seven official City of Chicago neighborhoods. Urban legend has it that the former residents of this community preferred to be viewed as part of the more affluent Beverly community. It appears that they selected the title, "North Beverly" Civic Association  based on that preference.  

NBCA's goal is to partner with CAPS and CPD to improve personal safety and property security; obtain appropriate city services; facilitate interaction between residents and the business community; educate our citizens on their rights, obligations, and responsibilities; and work effectively with our neighborhood partners to enhance the quality of life in our community.

Our History

Although none of the original NBCA records can be located, anecdotal information tells us that the North Beverly Civic Association was established prior to the 1970s when the area was predominately made up of white residents.  As the neighborhood changed from a white community to one that was predominately black, members of the organization also changed to reflect the new demographic. Today, the NBCA  membership is 100%  black.
