A Hand Up
At the ROC, we are passionate about standing beside individuals that are transitioning from homelessness, treatment, or jail/prison. We strive to develop strong mentoring relationships and build community around those we serve.
With 'A Hand Up', we do exactly that by providing temporary rental assistance to enrollees who are working hard to achieve their goals. With a team approach to goal setting, individuals develop a solid course of action, ensuring that their financial assistance has maximum, long term benefit.
Fish and Loaves
It has been estimated that up to 25% of families in SE Minnesota miss up to 10 meals per month. As of the summer of 2012, the ROC has partnered with Trader Joe's to run a food program and provide meals for hundreds of local families.
Reach out to us for locations and eligibility, as well as to hear about volunteer opportunities.
Round Table Mentoring
We believe that building a Christ centered community around those in need is the most effective way to facilitate long term growth. Our Round Table Mentoring program is staffed in part by volunteers with a heart for serving our community.
Round Table Mentoring is an effective tool for facilitating change. By creating a pool of intellectual and professional resources to draw from, problems that once seemed insurmountable are solved, and individuals are better able to conquer their roadblocks and overcome their disadvantage.
