From Relief to Restoration

With over 2,000 non-profit organizations in Greene County aimed at relief, we don't need another program—we need better communication​.

The Plan?

Urban Summit

Urban Summit is a one-day event in the Schweitzer Outreach Center on Thursday, October 3 from 9am–4pm, where we will focus on a good and beautiful community.

Guest speakers will share about education, health, diversity, family and faith—all vitally important for a thriving community. Our hope is to reignite your dreams and give you practical and strategic tools to make it happen by sharing stories and exposing you to multiple perspectives.

Who's invited?

This is a call to those who are doing the work of mending and building in Springfield's urban landscape:

  • the grandmothers who watch over the kids in the neighborhood
  • the bankers who make capital available in under-resourced areas
  • the neighborhood gardener
  • the artist who paints poles
  • the pastor who mentors a teenager the kid selling cookies on the sidewalk
  • the shop owner who keeps a day job open to give someone a chance
  • the marketing genius who embraces graffiti
  • the school teacher who keeps a stash of coats for cold days
