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.
Chloe’s Closet is a successful incentive allowing participants to shop for items for their little ones with points (not cash) they earn. The 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.

VISION: The Riverview International Center empowers our New American neighbors by supporting individuals, strengthening families and nurturing communities.
RIC assists 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 who can. The goal is to be a flexible and community-oriented resource for whoever comes through our door.

VISION AND MISSION: Northland Young Life (YL) is a relationship-based outreach ministry to students that attend or live near Northland & Mifflin High Schools. YL introduces adolescents to Jesus Christ and helps them grow in their faith.
Leaders go to the schools for sports events, school plays, volunteer in the library, and anything that gets them around kids. The hope is to foster relationships with kids to help them understand the Gospel and what it means for their lives.
