One Body Collaboratives

 OBC Logo

One Body Collaboratives is a faith-based nonprofit with a mission to mobilize, coordinate and further develop church and community resources to Rebuild Lives and Transform our Community. We Strive to Create a Flourishing Community by Reducing Poverty, Mobilizing Christians as Agents of Change and Creating Impactful Partnerships with Local Churches.

Our focus is on poverty reduction efforts in our community.  We achieve this through our Getting Ahead Classes for those experiencing poverty and through our work in creating our community‚Äôs first ever Poverty Reduction Strategy.  We are grateful to our many partners in this effort, including the City of Rockford and Winnebago County as well as numerous churches, agencies and nonprofits.

Through our Faith@Work program, we are working to help Christians in the Rockford area more deeply embrace their identity in Christ and its integration into their everyday work as they seek the common good of the region and beyond. We hosted a successful launch of this program in 2023 and plan to build on the momentum that was created.
