In the spirit of Mister Rogers, we embarked on an interview series we called “Won’t You Be Our Neighbor?” where Rev. Shawna Bowman talked with a number of community members from Chicago’s northwest side.

Our goal was to connect with our community in a meaningful was as we prepare to move into our new home at 5150 N Northwest Hwy.

Our guests illuminated the needs of our community and helped us understand where the hurt is and how we can help. They also showed us a lot of the good already happening on the northwest side, and how we can add to the joy. These interviews will be one of the many things that guide our choices as we move set up our new space. We can’t wait to welcome you in, neighbor!
