ROCKFORD (WREX) -

Rockford residents were invited to a free baking class today at the Strong Neighborhoods house on 8th Avenue. 

Children were able to attend one of three sessions where they could bake cookies, do arts and crafts and get to know their community and area police officers. 

"This house is a resource for community members, and we want to make sure that we are doing programming that is welcoming in the community and also welcoming to the families in the community," says Ashley Burks of the United Way. 

A Strong Neighborhoods house in the Ellis Heights neighborhood is set to open in spring 2016.
