The Riverview International

VISION: The Riverview International Center empowers our New American neighbors by supporting individuals, strengthening families and nurturing communities.

At the RIC, it is our desire to assist with the basic needs of New Americans in the Riverview Drive neighborhood. Our office is a place where people can walk in and get help with any question they may have about navigating life in America. If we cannot provide the help ourselves, we will work hard to find someone that can. The goal is to be a flexible and community-oriented resource for whoever comes through our door.


Homework and Tech Help: In need of volunteers to provide tech support for parents setting up school-issued Chromebooks, as well as ongoing homework help.

Cleaning: In need of 2-4 volunteers to clean the center twice a month.

  • Sanitizing surfaces

  • Sweeping/vacuuming and mopping

  • Wiping windows

  • Picking up trash around the building



VISION AND MISSION: Since 2000, CHLOE has provided community education in Columbus. In 2013 our focus narrowed to address justice issues for teen and young adult mothers. We provide a meal, speaker, or activity with childcare, twice each month (when not hampered by pandemic restrictions).

Chloe’s Closet is a successful incentive allowing participants to shop for items for their little ones with points (not cash) they earn. Our Closet is stocked by generous donations by the community. Young moms are further nurtured by volunteer Mentors or a ‘Sister~Friend’. CHLOE relies on financial support from individuals and corporate entities

Northland Young Life

VISION AND MISSION: Northland Young Life is a relationship-based outreach ministry to students that attend or live near Northland High School. We hope to introduce adolescents to Jesus Christ and help them grow in their faith. Jesus modeled a perfect ministry by coming to earth to be with us in our brokenness.

We as leaders hope to follow that model by meeting kids where they are and introducing them to Christ. To do this we go to Northland for sports events, school plays, volunteer in the library, and anything that gets us around kids. We have the hope of fostering relationships with kids so that we can help them understand the gospel and what it means for their lives.


None currently because of Coronavirus restrictions. as soon as we start running events there is a need for meal provision and help with rides on Monday nights.
