Rock House Kids reaches out to inner city youth, ages 4 through 18 who are at risk and in need, in Rockford's southeast inner city. It not only offers a safe, warm and nurturing environment, they serve hot meals and food bags to take with them, because many of them would otherwise have nothing to eat at home. They also provide after school tutoring and snacks, Bible classes, after basic life skills. They also provide basic clothing needs for children without shoes, socks, coats, scarves, hats and gloves, but most of all they provide them with real caring and love.
As we begin this fall season, may we think of the many blessings that God has given us and reach out to help children who cannot and do not have the means to help themselves. We have the opportunity to aid in helping these needy children. Jesus said, "Let the children come to me and forbid them not, for such is the Kingdom of God.". May we show our love for them through this vital ministry.
