Our Vision, Mission, and Method

OUR VISION

Jeremiah Development supports the well-being of the Coronado-Haskell neighborhood and organizes events that benefit the people of the entire Rockford region.

 

OUR MISSION

We support the Coronado-Haskell neighborhood and the greater Rockford area by facilitating access to services and programs for its residents and by responding to the concerns brought forth by those working and living in the neighborhood. We engage volunteers from throughout the Rockford region to use their skills and talents to improve the well-being of the neighborhood.

 

OUR METHOD

Our Vision and Mission are accomplished by focusing on three supporting pillars: organize, coordinate and advocate. As we listen to the needs of the community, we coordinate with residents and agencies to facilitate meeting those needs and act to promote positive change.

  • Organizing – by distributing a neighborhood newsletter, delivered door-to-door to improve communication, the organization has fostered an environment in which neighbors can discuss the needs of the community and generate solutions. In conjunction with the neighbors, the organization plans and promotes neighborhood gatherings to strengthen the bonds of the residents.
  • Coordinating – by promoting access to social service agencies and mental and physical health providers, the organization encourages meaningful, sustained and positive change for the residents of the neighborhood and those of the greater Rockford area, continuously and through events such as our LOVE Rockford and Jeremiah CARES programs.
  • Advocating – by assisting the neighbors in bringing change to those areas identified by the them as needs for the community, the organization helps the neighborhood to thrive.
