Note: IN APRIL 2018, IN A MOVE THAT MORE THAN TRIPLED ITS ABILITY TO HELP PEOPLE MOVE OUT OF POVERTY, EMMANUEL HOUSE MERGED WITH A LONG-TIME PARTNER ORGANIZATION TO BECOME The Neighbor Project.
Less than four years after Senator Dick Durbin’s visit to an Emmanuel House site in 2012, Emmanuel House was named one of the “TOP 100 MOST INNOVATIVE” SOCIAL CHANGE ORGANIZATIONS in the world . Read about that honor at the link below, and, also below, watch a VIDEO of the Senator’s visit.
On May 5, 2012, I posted this short paragraph as an introduction to the video: “On Monday, April 30, 2012, U.S. Senator Dick Durbin visited Emmanuel House, our family’s organization in Aurora, Illinois—a great day for us and for all organizations trying to build better communities. The visit was front page news the next day in the Sun Times/Beacon. See Video Below. Read the story Here.”
