Spanish classes in the neighborhood

Does anyone know of classes or any groups in the area for people wanting to learn Spanish? I'm a pediatric nurse here in Chicago and my year of Spanish in high school is long forgotten. Other than community colleges, does anyone know of other organizations that offer to teach Spanish?
Thanks
Dara
