Ten Years of Impact
Meet Juan and Mario who, along with their family, have grown with us for many years and rely on RCH to be their community rock.
As with many families living in poverty, they had to move and could no longer walk to RCH. But last March, when the pandemic hit and finances became desperate, their mom knew she could turn to RCH for support. Since then, Roberti Community House has been pleased to provide weekly food boxes and daily lunches for this family.
And now our relationship has come full circle! Mario gives back his time and volunteers at RCH’s Summer Youth program; a friendly face and helper for other kids.
Community Garden Program
Thank you to Kathy and Sara, University of Illinois Extension Master Gardeners, who come every week to work with us in the garden. They lead conversations on many topics including soil, sun, bugs, and so much more.
A salsa garden has been created with our youth growing everything you need for fresh salsa! We can’t wait for all the peppers, cilantro, jalapeños and onions to grow.
Community Health Work
Special thanks to Elizabeth Nodine, MD of Oak Street Clinic, for answering our questions!
