ROCKFORD (WREX) - The United Way opened its first strong neighborhoods home outside of Rockford.
This is the United Way's third strong neighborhood house. It's located in Machesney Park.
The goal of the strong neighborhoods home is to provide a central location for who people need resources like doing taxes, job training skills and study resources for kids.
"We find opportunities where children can feel comfortable and relaxed and build those relationships with officers," Gina Meeks, Director of Neighborhood Initiatives & Labor Engagement said.
There are two strong neighborhood homes in Rockford.
