Ten Years of Impact
For ten years (wow!) Roberti Community House has been a safe place for neighbors to be recognized and valued. This past year highlighted that in difficult times everyone needs support, a familiar face, a refuge.
Meet Juan and Mario who, along with their family, have grown with us for many years and rely on RCH to be their community rock.
Brothers Juan and Mario were regulars at RCH's Afterschool Program so twice a week they heard "I'm so glad you're here! How was school today?" They received a warm meal, homework support and fun activities in a caring environment.
As with many families living in poverty, they had to move and could no longer walk to RCH. But last March, when the pandemic hit and finances became desperate, their mom knew she could turn to RCH for support. Since then, Roberti Community House has been pleased to provide weekly food boxes and daily lunches for this family.

And now our relationship has come full circle! Mario gives back his time and volunteers at RCH's Summer Youth program; a friendly face and helper for other kids.
Community Garden Program

Thank you to Kathy and Sara, University of Illinois Extension Master Gardeners, who come every week to work with us in the garden. They lead conversations on many topics including soil, sun, bugs, and so much more.

A salsa garden has been created with our youth growing everything you need for fresh salsa! We can’t wait for all the peppers, cilantro, jalapeños and onions to grow.
Summer Fun
Neighborhood kids come to RCH to pretend, play, make art, and enjoy STEM activities. Thank you to our partner, Kohl’s Children’s Museum!
Community Health Work
Getting outdoors is a perfect way to nurture the mind, body and spirit. The first Saturday of every month we meet at Greenbelt Center in North Chicago. Last month we partnered with Oak Street Health, providing community members time to exercise while also offering the chance to talk with a medical health professional. This has been a great way to get valuable insight and advice, reducing barriers between health care providers and their patients. 
Special thanks to Elizabeth Nodine, MD of Oak Street Clinic, for answering our questions!
