Current Community

Shannon Grady joined the house and Christ the King School in August as the 4th grade teacher where she is already beloved by her students. Prior to coming to Detroit, Shannon grew up in Massachusetts, went to school in Rhode Island, and spent time teaching in South Africa. When the teaching and lesson-planning and grading are done, Shannon enjoys time in the house with her community or exploring Detroit and getting to know the Christ the King parish community.

Julia Hall also got to CKSC early, moving into the house shortly after graduating from University of Dayton in the Spring. Her placement is with Voices for Earth Justice, and she has revived the garden at Burt Road with her green thumb! When she’s not in the gardens at work or at home, Julia can be caught reading, studying for the GRE, attending community events, or watching Gilmore Girls with her community mates.

Katie Little moved to CKSC in February of 2018 making a mid-year start to the service corps. She spent six months working with Community Home Supports filling various roles including doing some community organizing in the Belmont neighborhood. In August, she transitioned to a new role at a new placement: the St. Suzanne Cody Rouge Community Resource Center, or SSCRCRC for short (lol). There, Katie is assisting with getting the whole center up and running and is launching a community entrepreneurship program. In her free time, Katie has also been a huge help to Christ the King Church, putting her graduate degree in environmental engineering to work and coordinating a rain garden built to divert excess water from the city drains.
