Bethlehem Howell Neighborhood Center collections
University of Illinois at Chicago, Richard J. Daley Library, Special Collections and University Archives
Bethlehem Center and Howell House were church-related neighborhood houses serving the Pilsen area on the Near West Side
of Chicago. They provided religious, social services, and personal welfare assistance to an immigrant community composed
predominantly of Bohemians, Poles, and Czechs. The two centers cooperated throughout their history, merging in 1961 as
the Neighborhood Service Organization. The Neighborhood Service Organization, popularly known as Casa Aztlan (the name
reflects the current Hispanic ethnicity of the neighborhood) continues to serve the Pilsen area. This collection reflects the
activities performed by both the Bethlehem and Howell Neighborhood Houses and their relationships with outside government
bodies, community organizations, settlement houses, religious institutions, and service agencies. The bulk of the work consists
of correspondences, reports, and community activity from 1935 to 1955. The BHNC collection provides hundreds of documents
depicting second-generation immigrant social and community life in the Chicago’s Pilsen Neighborhood.
