Lee Street is thankful to partner with organizations and businesses in our community which help us be a blessing to one another.
Godfrey-Lee Public Schools
Being located next to Lee High School and Middle School allows us to have a relationship with school staff, teachers and students. We build trust and collaborate in projects for the benefit of our community. We are honored to host several events at our church such as choir concerts and baccalaureate for graduates. We respond to various needs within the school, such as clothing drives or volunteers for after school clubs. In the summer Lee Street en Español has partnered with the athletic department and coaches to offer a Summer Soccer Camp for youth.

We partner with H2H because we strongly believe loving others comes with action. H2H’s mission is to eliminate local childhood hunger — one child at a time. We also believe prayer is as equally important as the food we distribute, and are committed to praying for each and every student. We agree and are honored to pray for families and supply backpacks of food to Godfrey-Lee Elementary students each week throughout the school year.

Kent School Services Network (KSSN)
KSSN is a community school initiative. This organization partners with others to provide services needed by students. We volunteer at their events and they contact us when there is a need in the community to which our church can respond. Our collaboration efforts allow us to host the monthly food truck at times in the church’s parking lot with volunteers from the church and school.

United Church Outreach Ministry (UCOM)
UCOM serves our community in many different ways: food and nutrition programs, a food pantry, educational programs for children and adults, physical activity classes, financial stability classes, and many other services. Our partnership with UCOM goes back many years. We serve on their food truck distribution days, help people in the community with small home repairs, or bring groceries to those in need from the Food Pantry we maintain in the church basement.

Great Lakes Urban (GLU)
Forming a collaborative team of neighbors who focus on asset-based community development is a good thing GLU is doing in the Godfrey-Lee community. We join other businesses and organizations in the city who financially and prayerfully are supporting the work of a community connector in our area. Doris Perez is currently serving in this role working with neighbors and the Godfrey Lee Listener (GLL) Board. To connect with Doris, email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Wyoming Police Department
In the past we have hosted The Wyoming Police Department for presentations regarding crime and safety in our neighborhood as they continue to develop and support Neighborhood Watch groups in our area. Together we seek to build up our community to be a great place to work and live.
