Karisa Wenberg, Executive Director of 1Hope spoke at our luncheon today. Their movement began in 2015 when over 30 Kenosha churches worked together at a Convoy of Hope event. Based on our success and mutual goals, we decided to come together and work towards the collaborative purpose of restoring hope and transforming lives in our community. This event led to multiple meetings with local Churches, government representatives, and business professionals. We listened and learned about the social and economic challenges facing our city. Throughout these meetings, we solidified and focused our collective energy in the areas of church unity, foster care, and neighborhood transformation – all areas that have been historically overlooked. Focused on uniting, fostering and transforming communities. 1HOPE believes in the power of the Churches of Kenosha and their collective ability to unify, gather, pray, and serve together. United, we can ensure that foster children and families have the love and support they need, children are being mentored to become the next generation of leaders, and neighborhoods provide a better quality of life by transforming into safe and prosperous communities.  www.1hope.community
