Get in Motion!
Synergy is a joint project between the Neighboring Movement, Resurrection Community Church, Legacy Ministries, and the neighbors of the SoCe Neighborhood in Wichita, KS.
We are transforming an old building in our community to be a center of community, collaboration, skill development, and neighboring. The space will include office and co-working opportunities for non-profits who share common values. Synergy will create opportunity for youth and neighbors to learn hard and soft skills that end the cycles of poverty and positively impact social determinates of health.
Our first workday will be June 1, from 9am-12pm. Sign up below if you can join us or if you just want to be notified of future news.
The SoCe Co-Working Center is being created in the former education wing of a church. The space will be renovated one room at a time 100% debt free. Any amount you contribute will make a difference. Here are some of the ways we will spend the money we raise.
Total cost for one room: $3500
PTAC Air Unit $900

More about Synergy…
The Mission: To create a collaborative space for community minded non-profits, neighbors, and associations to connect, belong, and share skills.
Under guidance from Neighboring Movement, RCC, and Legacy Ministries; Synergy will be a place of slow and meaningful transformation. This project will honor the sharing of gifts from the neighbors who surround the hub and friends who can provide resources beyond the neighborhood. Synergy has a commitment to being debt free, entrepreneurial, and asset focused.
As neighbors, youth, co-workers, and volunteers enter the space they will experience a sense of belonging that nurtures care for self, love of neighbor, artistic expression with an emphasis on diversity.
The Plan: With the help of volunteers and small donations Synergy will be transformed one room at a time. The main floor of the building is a former daycare and has large classrooms with bathrooms in-between each room. The estimated cost for each room is $3500 and $850 for each bathroom. As funds are available work teams will be recruited to activate new spaces.
