Rockford, IL

        Rockford, IL, our “big town, little city” located about 85 miles Northwest of Chicago, is situated on the Rock River and has a diverse population that is mirrored in the variety of cultural institutions and restaurants.  There is a significant amount of poverty in Rockford that has impacted many of our downtown and western neighborhoods.

        In 2006, RWC teamed up with the City of Rockford Weed & Seed program to better serve the community.  Weed & Seed, a community-based strategy sponsored by the U.S. Department of Justice, is an innovative, comprehensive multiagency approach to law enforcement, crime prevention, and community revitalization. This program was developed because of the great need in communities across the nation.  In one of our Weed and Seed neighborhoods, as high as 1 in 2.5 people (41.4%) is living in poverty.*

        Thanks to volunteers like you, we have already begun to make an impact in this community and many more across Rockford.  However, we need your help to continue to make a difference!
