There are over 40,000 people in poverty in the southern WNY zip codes we serve. Rural poverty is called the invisible poverty because it is hidden and dispersed across a wide geographic area, making it difficult to provide services. The ROC is here to fill that service gap.

Participants seeking services at the ROC often have difficulty meeting basic human needs. We noticed a continued need in this area throughout 2019. Participants had difficulty maintaining housing, food, utilities, clothing, and transportation. Can you cover the cost of groceries for a family for a week?

Young children that have been traumatized can express their feelings so they can resolve and overcome challenges in a safe environment to help them develop better emotional control and social skills. Can you provide an hour of therapy for a child?
