Ring of Hope

About Us

The Ring of Hope started in the summer of 2010 as a partnership between Just Christ Ministries and Revere Care (community organization). This grass roots community endeavor received financial and moral support from local businesses, political leaders, and community residents. As a pilot program we focused our efforts in the Greater Grand Crossing community. Along with our youth programs ROH has implemented weekly food distribution to families in need. We have started the process of implementing a job skills training program. In the near future we would like also provide mental health counseling, support for substance abuse, parenting classes and, financial literacy courses. There are many issues that are facing our community today but, ROH is committed to being a light in the community that offers the hope and support that will rebuild our community so they thrive for generations to come. With your support you can help insure that our vision for our community becomes an reality.
