Community Survey

Did you know that fewer than half of American adults know most or all of their neighbors?  A recent survey from the Pew Internet & American Life Project found that when respondents were asked if they knew the names of the neighbors who live close to them, 19% of adults said they knew all of their neighbors. Another 24% said they knew most of their neighbors. This left the majority of American adults knowing only some (29%) or none (28%) of their neighbors by name. We want to change that in Steubenville.  In fact,...

Summer Food Program Updates

Summer Food is back again and we’re excited for the opportunity to expand this program this year.  Below are the locations and times for each meal site.  There are six this year!
