Welcome to the Congolese Community of Chicago (C.C.C.-D.R.C.). The Congolese Community of Chicago is a not-for-profit organization incorporated in the state of Illinois and exempt from federal income tax under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

The primary mission of C.C.C.-D.R.C. is to facilitate the integration of people of Congolese descent in the fabric of the American society while providing them and other Americans with a platform for learning about and appreciating the richness of the Congolese culture in its diversity. To fulfill that mission, the organization opens its membership ranks not only to those who can claim Congolese parentage and their spouses, but also to anyone interested in helping Congolese immigrants and refugees succeed.

The leadership of C.C.C.-D.R.C. is convinced that the success of this organization requires that the organization be relevant in the lives of its members. The programs and activities that we pursue in the future will reflect that goal. Beyond that, the leadership also understands that there is power in serving others. For that reason, we intend to challenge our members in the future to reach out to those least fortunate than they with a helping hand.
