This photo was taken at a distribution in January 2021, we are still serving a high number of community members each month. We want to thank our dedicated volunteers for making it possible for RIR to continue to serve our clients! We could not do it with you. Thank you!
It has been my pleasure to serve you and our Redford Community, as RIR’s Executive Director, since 1998, the year we were founded! It is time for me to step down at the end of the year, to pursue other opportunities that God has instore for me. Many thanks to Teri Temby, our President of our Board of Directors. Teri will be managing the transition.
I am pleased to pass the torch to Natalie Emerick, as RIR’s Program Coordinator! We are blessed to have her at RIR.
Ever heard of the term Poverty Cycle?
I know some of you have heard of the term poverty before, but have you heard of the term “the poverty cycle”? Income is usually never a fun topic to talk about, but it is really important to talk about when discussing food pantries and why it is so difficult to pull one’s self out of poverty.
