Rochester Organization Of Families (ROOF)
ROOF is a non-profit organization that serves the community of Rochester, Washington in Thurston County. Rochester is a rural community just south of Olympia, with a population of about 11,000 people, 15% Hispanic, 8% Native American. About 40% of Rochester's families are below the poverty line and greatly benefit from ROOF's services.
The mission of the Rochester Organization of Families (ROOF) is to address community needs by providing resources and services to children, youth and families to achieve a healthy, positive and drug-free community in the Rochester area.
ROOF serves as a one-stop shop in that it provides a network of resources under one roof. It's homegrown, and with the substantial commitment of members of the community, it will continue to grow in response to their involvement and their needs.
