The Living Room

At Urban Vision, we believe that education is vital to lasting change, both for individuals and for our community as a whole. With 28+ different languages spoken in our diverse neighborhood, English is both a foundation and a barrier to learning.  Urban Vision strives to bridge educational gaps in our community, helping our neighbors achieve their highest potentials, within a safe and structured learning environment.

To minister to adults in our community by helping them overcome language barriers, UV partners with Crossings (a ministry of Christ Community Chapel) to provide The Living Room.

This program teaches English as a Foreign Language to many parents and adults in our community. Volunteers help these neighbors learn to speak, read, and write English, but also engage in conversation with them, seeking to overcome cultural, religious, and relational barriers as well as language.
