"Seek the well-being of the city, for it is by seeking its well-being that you will find your well-being"

Jeremiah 29:7


Then Now

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.

Thanks to all who participated in our fundraiser!  The luminaries painted a night scene of the downtown area, the Coronado Theater, the gazebo at Beattie Park and part of the Burpee Museum as designed by the staff at Studio 317.  Paul Logli and Mike Robinson auctioned them off and raised over $3,400 for our partnership with the Rockford Urban Ministries Summer Work Camp Program.   If you missed it this year, watch for next year's event!
