Break the Cycle of Rural Poverty
In America, no one should be forced to endure unspeakable trauma and be isolated and unable to access services. No one should go hungry because they can’t access food assistance programs, live in fear and anxiety without the ability to visit a doctor. Our life-saving services can be simple, accessible, and provide hope through our wrap-around care and two-generational approach. Our rural children need your support to grow to live productive, enriching lives. With your gift, we can serve our rural Participants with the dignity and respect they deserve.
Donating to The Rural Outreach Center will:
- Every $50 raised helps us to secure a warm pair of boots for a rural child
- Every $500 raised helps us provide 5 hours of trauma-informed counseling to a family or child
- Every $1,000 helps to provide gas and maintenance on our vans to provide hundreds of trips a year to our programs.
