Peoria: The City We Love
Peoria is a historic city that has seen many changes in its over 170-year history. Located in what is often refereed to as the heart of Illinois, its urban atmosphere offers a plethora of cultural dynamics. There are several realities that Reachway is mindful of, particularly as we consider engaging the city with the love and hope of Jesus Christ:
- 115,000+ residents (370,000 in metro area)
- Household income $10,000 less than state average
- 22% of residents live at or below poverty threshold
- 13,000+ public school students, 73% low-income, 4% homeless
- Multiple under-resourced neighborhoods
- 45% of residents religiously unaffiliated ("nones")
