God is doing amazing things in the lives of our kids throughout our communities.
Thank you for considering taking the time to learn "Who's my Neighbor?" here in the Fox River Valley.
As we continue to answer the Lord's call to expand the reach of the Community Advocacy Ministry, we believe that it is absolutely essential for all of our partners to get a deeper understanding of the realities our families are facing in our local housing communities.
"Who's my Neighbor?" will be a one-afternoon opportunity to personally interact with some of the families in the housing communities that Riverwoods serves throughout the year. On Tuesday, September 1st, we will be meeting at Riverwoods at 3pm for a brief orientation and training and then heading out in teams to seven different housing communities. We will be meeting individually with families in their apartments to register kids for our weekly fall programs. This is a great opportunity to learn first hand about the realities of suburban poverty.
