The Wrightwood Neighbors Association (WNA) is a community group of neighbors and businesses working together since 1962 to help improve our neighborhood.
We are an all-volunteer community group for businesses and all people living in the area bounded by Halsted and Fullerton, and Lakewood and Diversey.
We bring neighbors and businesses together to work with our 2nd and 43rd Aldermen, 19th District Police, Engine 55 Fire Station, and City of Chicago agencies to help provide you with the best services possible.
WNA makes sure that Wrightwood remains a nice place to work, live and play.
