We work on the east side of this diverse city with the immigrant and homeless community. This is a transportation and warehouse district, which brings many immigrants and transients into the area. We are bringing people together to join with the work of Jesus in this community.
Some of the needs in this community include food distribution for the hungry, workplace abuse, the plight of ex-offenders seeking housing and jobs, and homelessness.
One Collective works in collaboration with many organizations, schools, and churches in the Joliet community. As our team builds relationships within the community, needs continue to be discovered.
With the collaboration of many partners, we’re running a mentoring program for at-risk students, in the form of small groups focused on providing discipleship. Additionally, we are helping reintegrate students who have expulsion warnings back into healthy relationships.
We also work with the homeless and immigrant populations, helping them integrate into the community and connecting them with available resources.
