100 STRONG was formed in January of 2016 by a handful of bold men that made the call to ALL concerned men in Rockford that realize that we have no right to complain about the problems that’s going on in Rockford if all we’re gonna do is open our mouth but not be willing to lift a finger to help towards a solution. This call to action was a response to the several deaths, shootings and chaotic state of mind of the Rockford Youth.

They held a fundraiser event on Saturday August 17th 2019 in the afternoon at their safe house at 4111 Auburn, Across from the Auburn Manor.

They are a non profit organization that helps the community.  The fundraiser on Saturday was to help with funding the young bull athletics team. All donations go towards transporting the children to and from games and practice, equipment, referees, etc. Also for our community center that keeps our youth out of the streets and helps them and their families when in need .

They had delicious chicken sandwich’s and a pop for a few bucks.
We highly recommend you trying their chicken sandwich’s!


We sat down and talked with one of the board members of the 100 Strong, Danny B Worley.  He describes what 100 Strong is, how they help the community,  their goals and how they started, etc… Take a few minutes and watch the interview below.

100 Strong’s primary mission is to educate, mentor and support programming that advances the positive interests of youth throughout Rockford.

100 STRONG is a grassroots organization consisting of men and women with a common goal of helping our community by teaching, mentoring, empowering, and uplifting our youth.

The members of 100 Strong are devoted to improving the quality of life for African-Americans-particular young males-through programs focusing on positive social interaction, economic empowerment, mentoring and education. We seek to serve as a beacon of leadership by utilizing our diverse talents to create an environment where our children are motivated to achieve and to empower our young people to become self-sufficient shareholders in the economic and social fabric of the communities we serve. We do this by coordinating our efforts and by focusing attention on systemic issues that impede African Americans from achieving a higher quality of life.

Some of our main objectives in this Safe House are:
1) Crime reduction by providing skills and an open work environment.
2) Illiteracy reduction by introducing non-traditional avenues of learning and education.
3) Neighborhood development by inspiring community members with a renowned sense of self-worth, self-pride
and self-esteem.
4) Increasing positive social interaction by providing a place where youth can freely resolve peer conflicts in
a safe and loving environment.

If each one can reach one to teach one we can change our community!
