Though it is only one mile square, the area of Rockford served by Jeremiah Development is the heart of the city. Bordered by State Street on the south, Whitman on the north, Rockton on the west and the Rock River on the east, it encompasses cultural, religious, government, educational, and commercial facilities along with hundreds of single- and multi-family homes. For Rockford to develop to its full potential, the heart of the city must thrive. That is the goal of Jeremiah Development.
Jeremiah Development is proud to announce that we have been awarded two different grants to help fund our partnership with Rockford Urban Ministries. We are beginning our second summer of bringing work campers from throughout the United States to our neighborhood to paint, fix roofs, landscaping, whatever the people of our neighborhood might require. To that end we have received a $1,250 grant from the Margaret K.Aldeen Christian Ministry Fund of the Community Foundation of Northern Illinois. Additionally we received $10,000 from the Schneider Electric Building, LLC Charitable Fund of the Community Foundation of Northern Illinois. We look forward to continuing this partnership to improve the well-being of our neighborhood.
