Community Service in Kenosha, Wisconsin | Week of Hope

Week of Hope is packed with practical acts of love and service. Students build meaningful connections as they serve people through our strong partnerships with local ministries and nonprofit organizations. They’ll learn Christ-like empathy and compassion for others as they meet the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of disadvantaged children, youth, and adults. As students serve in the name of Jesus, they’ll develop friendships with the people being served, with other teams, with their own youth group, and, most importantly, with Jesus. Denominational differences disappear as like-minded youth work together for a common purpose.

Where

Years ago, Kenosha was an active center of manufacturing, but like many other cities in this part of the country, the community has been hurt by factory closures and industry changes. Currently, Kenosha has great need with hunger, foster care, and after-school/summer mentoring programs. There is a hunger gap of about 20,000 pounds of food, and over 200 kids in the foster care system… a growing number every year. On top of that, only one school in Kenosha offers an after-school program or a summer program for kids. Week of Hope partners with organizations across the city to tackle these issues. The city of Kenosha has targeted two areas as its top priority to address in the next five years: first, programs to help the youth of the community; and second, improvements to its urban areas. Week of Hope projects will directly and indirectly support these top two initiatives. You and your team will help the city accomplish these worthwhile goals with your involvement!
