Evening Programs

Our programs run all year long! We’re only closed during extreme weather and on federal holidays. 

GE DIGITAL CAMERAThe kids of Rock House

From Monday to Thursday, during the evening hours, we open our doors for Rockford’s inner city kids, providing a safe and warm place, a hot meal, and daily essentials. These children are often bounced from home to home, and come to us for love and support. 

Once a month Rosie’s Birthday Club helps us celebrate the kids’ birthdays with a party, cake and presents. During the summer, Rockford Park District provides vouchers to take the kids on picnics or swimming at local pools. 

Christmas is a big deal around here too. We work hard collecting wish lists from the children and the community helps by purchasing a special gift for a child or providing gift cards which we can use to shop for the children. Each child receives a large bag of gifts and a filled stocking. The children squeal with joy and are excited to take their presents home to show their families.  

Mime Team

We’re excited to now offer three additional programs:  Praise Dance, Mime Team, and Puppets and Props. These fun, creative groups give the children a chance to be expressive and learn different art forms.

If you have any questions about Rock House Kids, are interested in becoming a volunteer, or would like to donate towards our program, please call us at 815-962-5067.

  • Greetings Mary Lou! I think we have already spoken by phone but we accept many things through the winter months such as: lotions, chap sticks, blankets, winter coats (kids sizes), mittens and gloves. We are able to share these items directly with the kids. Thanks for asking. Have a great day!
