Help for Today…Hope for Eternity

Rock House Kids is a 501(C)3 nonprofit organization that strives to feed Rockford's inner-city children physically, spiritually and emotionally. Since 1999, we have cared for kids, grades 1-12, by providing a safe, warm and nurturing environment four evenings a week.

During our evening program, kids receive a hot meal, then enjoy music, Bible lessons and lots of fun activities. The program is led by compassionate, adult staff and volunteer mentors who use Biblical principles to teach basic life skills, encourage the kids to do their best in school, and develop positive goals for their futures. Special speakers are asked to come and share about topics like manners, purity, and gang avoidance and prevention.

At the end of each evening, the children leave with a bag of kid-friendly, non-perishable food items to help sustain them when they are away from our program. Throughout the year we provide the children with important items such as coats, shoes, boots, socks, hats and mittens, hygiene supplies, blanket and pillow, flashlight, school supplies, and even birthday and Christmas gifts.

We are always looking for caring adult volunteers to help us care for the children who are in need of mentoring and guidance!
