A volunteer-powered neighborhood gathering place.



The Highland Park Improvement Club (HPIC) has been the heart of our community since 1919. HPIC belongs to our neighborhood and is powered by volunteers. 

We're your gathering place and your community. Join us for our next neighborhood event. We hold free movie nights, craft fairs and we turn into your local corner bar on the first Friday of every month.

Goddess Project Viewing Party - Friday September 29th


HPIC is proud to be hosting a viewing of the Goddess Project, a documentary  film amplifying the voices and stories of women across the United States.

Determined to empower the feminine voice, two aspiring filmmakers packed their lives into a school bus and hit the road for what became the most transformative adventure of their lives. Through powerful conversations with over 100 women from different walks of life, The Goddess Project gives an intimate look into the collective experience that women in the United States face today.  
Join us at 7PM for an hour of connection, featuring wines from women wine makers, HPIC bar and food, and soulful networking.  Documentary starts at 8PM, followed by a  group discussion.  Event is limited to 50 people, so register now!
