Welcome to JCity Center for Hope & Renewal

We’re rebuilding bridges in Johnston City, Illinois. One of our community development goals is to inform, unite, and promote our town by publishing JCity Arrow News, a free, hometown newspaper with a companion video podcast. We offer individual services like counseling as well. We believe that better people make better communities, and better communities means better lives.
