THE SIMPLE ROOM
The Simple Room is a non-‐profit community center in Greenville, IL that is open every evening Monday-‐Saturday from 6-‐10 pm. Students who attend are free to hang-‐out, do homework, play games, eat snacks, and participate in programs. During the school year we regularly serve about 90 kids by facilitating 12 programs with support from a team of nearly 40 volunteers a week. All our programs are offered free of cost to participants and provide opportunities for youth to develop their whole person. Our programming is based on our ability to connect community resources with our kids’ interests and needs. These programs have benefited from, and often would not be possible, without our organization’s network of quality relationships with local social work and law enforcement agencies, area public schools, churches and community organizations, and Greenville College.

empowering youth building community the last 30 years The Simple For Room’s mission has been to meet the
needs of our community’s youth. We care about kids with wonderful potential – they are so full of energy and talent and dreams. Yet they may not have the resources they need to succeed. We are convinced these resources can be found right here in our community. We want to empower youth by providing the opportunities and support they need to achieve their potential. We want to see our kids develop, succeed, and, ultimately, be able to give back to their community.
