Rotary International District 5330 To Present A $40,000 Donation To the Grove Community Church To Bring The Grove Village Project To Life

Four cottages on the Grove Community Church’s campus are being constructed in response to the Mayor’s Love Your Neighbor Initiative

RIVERSIDE, Calif. – Rotary International District 5330 will present a $40,000 donation to the Grove Community Church. The donation will help offset the costs associated with building four cottages on the Grove Community Church’s campus.

Who: Rotary International District 5330, The Grove Community Church, Mayor Rusty Bailey, and the Riverside City Council

What: The Grove Village will consist of four cottages on the campus of Grove Community Church. The cottages will provide housing for our neighbors without homes, and each resident will receive strong wrap-around services from Path of Life, one of our region’s leading homeless solutions provider.  The development is a collaborative project involving The Grove Community Church, Rotary International District 5330, Tilden Coil Constructors, The City of Riverside, Habitat for Humanity, Riverside Unified School District’s STEM Academy, Champion Electric, Inc., and Path of Life.

When1:00 p.m.Tuesday, June 19.

Where: Art Pick Council Chambers at Riverside City Hall, located at 3900 Main Street, Riverside, CA 92522.

Why: The City of Riverside has approximately 425 neighbors without homes living on our streets. In recent years, we have seen increasing numbers of young adults who have aged out of the foster system and women over 50 experiencing homelessness.  Following the City’s success housing our homeless veterans, Mayor Rusty Bailey invited the city’s faith-based community to work collaborative to find solutions for our neighbors without homes.  One of the solutions generated was the potential of building housing on faith-based property, allowing the residents to have immediate and strong support systems.
