Campaign to build ROC Central

The Need

There has been a 300% increase in the number of counseling and care coordination sessions offered in the past 24 months. The current space – a small, repurposed FEMA trailer – is not enough space to meet this dramatic increase in the need for services. In fact, it limits the ability of staff, partners, and the community to address the complex issue of rural poverty.   

The Solution

Your support will help build the Scott R. Bieler Rural Outreach Center, bringing together the many services and programs offered by the Rural Outreach Center. This building will include offices, counseling rooms, large, open, dividable areas, for children’s programming including play therapy, larger community gathering spaces, and small group sessions. A plaza for outdoor gatherings, a meditation/chapel access to the building for worship, conferences, and other community events. The Scott R. Bieler Rural Outreach Center will be a community asset, designed to be a place of hope and healing for families living in rural poverty. 

The Reaching Out Campaign goal is to raise $4,200,000 and we are almost there. We need your help to meet this goal, build the Scott R. Bieler Rural Outreach Center, and put an end to rural poverty. Your gift to the Reaching Out Campaign will help lift children out of poverty and give them a chance at a normal childhood and a productive fulfilling life.
