ETHOS (Environment, Transportation, Heath, and Open Space) is a registered, non-traditional block club centered in the South Shore community, consisting of 67 members who live in the 4th, 5th, 7th, 8th and 10th Wards of Chicago within 2 miles of the Lake Michigan shoreline. We are a multi-racial, multi-generational, and mixed income group. We are individuals, families with children, and extended families. We are renters, homeowners, and small landlords. Some of us have lived in the community for most of our lives; others of us have lived here only for a few years.
