There are people who want to make a difference and there are people who are making a difference. The following organizations are the action takers in Rochester and beyond. I’m so proud to live in a community that has so much compassion. If you’d like to give back then maybe you could start here.
It takes a village they say, but actually, in this case, it is more of a neighborhood concept. The Neighborhood House is committed to helping neighbors who are in distress during times of hardship. Circumstances in life can cause anyone of us to need the helping hand of another. The Neighborhood House coordinates that help. To learn more visit their WEBSITE.
This is a community outreach program that fills in for those who might not have the support of a church family. It was started by a couple, Brian and Lisa Cain, who experienced the struggles of having to feed and clothe their family while tending to their second child’s long illness. Brain and Lisa had a church family who stepped in where the agencies failed them. This program is rooted in the area Churches of Christ. To learn more about this organization visit their WEBSITE.
