Love Rockwood

by | Aug 25, 2018

Today I’m chatting with Krisiti Knifong. Kristi is a long-time member at Good Shepherd and she is also the Local Outreach Administrator. We discuss what Kristi’s day-to-day activities look like in the role and how her position helps coordinate and lead Good Shepherd’s local outreach efforts.

One of the focuses of Kristi’s work is Rockwood – one of the poorest areas in Oregon. We discuss why the area of Rockwood was chosen as a focus and the initiatives Good Shepherd is taking. Kristi also shares stories showing the impact of outreach efforts in the Rockwood community.
