The Irving Park area is served by two civic organizations, each covering different sections.
United Neighbors in Team Effort (U.N.I.T.E.) Civic Association was founded in May of 1976 by a group of neighbors that felt a need to become organized and form a voice for the community they lived in. Founders Harold and Patricia Fagan, owners of the long-gone Fagan Paint, provided the avenue to success for the civic. U.N.I.T.E. serves the area from Montrose Ave to Irving Park Road, Monticello Ave. to Sacramento Ave. Today, the U.N.I.T.E Board of Directors is made up of community residents that share the same concern for the community as a whole.

The Old Irving Park Association (OIPA) is a non-profit, all volunteer community group active onChicago's northwest side since 1983. Our members, ranging from young families to longtime residents, work together on many projects which impact our mutual quality of life. These range from painting murals under viaducts and creating street banners to traffic and zoning issues and working with housing developers and area businesses. Social activities include an annual Holiday Potluck, Spring Egg Hunt, June Ice Cream Social and special childrens' events. OIPA serves as a link between the residents of Old Irving Park and all of our elected officials. The group is a federally registered 501(c)3 organization.
