Serving Rifle and Parachute, The ROC was born out of the realization that in spite of existing charitable organizations, needs in the community are still going unmet. One factor is that those in need either do not know WHERE to go or do not know WHAT is being offered.
Rather than "reinvent the wheel" and create additional or duplicate services, the ROC's mission is to serve as a community outreach RESOURCE & REFERRAL center, connecting those living in Rifle and Parachute who are in need with appropriate services.
In order to accomplish this, we are referral partners with:
Feed My Sheep
GARCO Human Services
Jennifer Glynn, LCSW,CCFC
Mountain Family health
Rifle Comunity Services
Rifle Work Force
St. Mary's Rifle Parish
The River Center
The Salvation Army
The Rifle SDA Community Service Center
SO HOW DOES THIS WORK??
As a RESOURCE & REFERRAL agency we can refer the individual to the proper service where they may receive help with emergency medical bills, utility vouchers, prescription medications, housing vouchers, gas cards, bus passes, housing repairs, food & clothing.
ROC funds are also available to help with utilities, rent, food and transportation in Rifle and Parachute.
Through our VOLUNTEER TEAMS we can help with such programs as Angel Tree; Senior Assistance; School Programs (Totes of Hope).
We will continue to identify resources and create solutions for unmet needs.
