AREA Chicago is looking for volunteers to participate in the CHA Drive By Project.  The  CHA Drive By Project is a website which will archive personal memories, stories and experiences of former Chicago Housing Authority residents the community to access.

The phrase “Drive By” is sometimes connected to gang violence, but we mean it instead as a way of evoking memory through a quick passage by a location.

What do you think of when you drive by the place you used to live? What comes to mind when you think back to what it was like?

The CHA Drive By Project website is a place to share stories on the internet.  For more information about the project and how to participate, please visit:
