Rock House Kids

Rock House Kids strives to feed Rockford's inner-city children physically, spiritually and emotionally. Since 1999, they have cared for kids, ages 6-18, by providing a safe, warm and nurturing environment four evenings a week.

During their evening program they serve hot meals, and enjoy music and instructional time. The program is led by compassionate, adult volunteers who teach basic life skills, encourage the kids to do their best in school, and develop positive goals for their futures.

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 the program. Throughout the year children are provided with important items such as coats, shoes, boots, socks, hats and mittens, hygiene supplies, blanket and pillows, flashlights, school supplies, and even birthday and Christmas gifts.
