LOVE Rockford is back in 2021!

LOVE Rockford is back in 2021. The pandemic prevented Jeremiah Development from holding the event in 2020, but the 2021 event will incorporate measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. 

LOVE Rockford is a four-hour event organized to help those in need of physical, emotional, medical, legal, and financial support.

LOVE Rockford is fortified with the help of more than 30 agencies that provide services such as family therapy, counseling for addiction and domestic violence, evaluation and treatment for mental illness, assistance with medical needs, and legal aid regarding immigration issues. It also provides basic necessities such as food and clothing.

LOVE Rockford is a chance for individuals, faith communities, organizations, health care providers and businesses to join hands to make a difference in the lives of struggling residents.

LOVE Rockford is the potential for a fresh start—an opportunity for those who are ready to put the pieces of their lives back together again.


The LOVE Rockford event is scheduled for Sept. 25, 2021.

The event runs from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. Registration begins at 9:30 am. 

The event takes place at the locations of Jeremiah Development’s three founding churches:
Court Street United Methodist Church — 215 N. Court St.

SecondFirst Church — 318 N. Church St.
Emmanuel Episcopal Church — 412 N. Church St.
