KANKAKEE — Residents of Kankakee’s 2nd Ward are invited to discuss needs in their community during two open houses this week in the Strong Neighborhoods Home at 591 S. Elm Ave.

Strong Neighborhood Homes are properties converted into something similar to community centers, but they are customized for residents of the neighborhood.

The city of Kankakee acquired the blue two-story house at the northwest corner of South Elm Avenue and East River Street for $90,000 in late May using federal grant funds.
