Local Efforts

rvaIt’s our intention to create tangible opportunities for people to functionally love the city of Richmond and proclaim the mercy of God to a city that is in desperate need of this truth. Part of “doing what we are” involves reflecting a love of righteousness, justice, and mercy. People who love this city and serve it with no ulterior motive and no greater reason than the fact that we have been loved by a redeeming God who has sent us to this city as His Ambassadors are the greatest hope for the city of Richmond.

Below are a few of the organizations where you’re likely to find Redemption Hill folk. However, the majority of our local efforts are initiated and run through the various Communities that gather throughout the city on a weekly basis. These Communities are reaching out to refugees, schools, the homeless, and countless other areas of Richmond.

Youth Life Foundation of Richmond: (founded originally by our very own Heather Goodlett!) The Youth Life Foundation of Richmond is committed to nurturing the child, strengthening the family, and rebuilding the community. They believe that early support for children helps to ensure their successful future. Their comprehensive after-school and full-summer program services aim to help children develop into leaders who positively influence their families and communities. Ongoing Needs: Mentors to work with the students 2 hours a week, 3:30-5:30 p.m. or 4-6 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

Church Hill Activities & Tutoring: CHAT’s goal is to create and sustain intentional communities that are dedicated to transforming the lives of at-risk youth in Church Hill.
