Background
Our ministry is based on the following Scripture...

The Word became flesh and blood,
and moved
into the neighborhood.
We saw the glory with our own eyes,
the one-of-a-kind glory,
like Father, like Son,
Generous inside and out,
true from start to finish.

John 1:14    The Message

Marti and Louis Williams founded Into The Neighborhood in 2013 after living in Southern Barton Heights in the Northside of Richmond, VA for nine years.  The neighborhood, although beautiful and historic, faced many challenges, mainly street crime, poverty, family fragmentation, and more. The ministry served the immediate community until The Lord led them to also serve a 2nd neighborhood, The Richmond City Justice Center. 
CEO Statement
Into The Neighborhood not only serves the Southern Barton Community and the Richmond City Justice Center (RCJC), but we also serve the Metro Richmond area. 
  1. We are not a 'project' driven ministry, but relationship driven. We value relationships over getting stuff done.
  2. Residents of the RCJC return back to every part of the Metro Area, and we want them to return as better citizens, with jobs, healthy relationships and spiritually grounded.
