Serving youth in Bartow County
The ROC (“Reaching Our Community”) Resiliency Support Clubhouse helps youth with mental health issues build self-esteem, resiliency and life skills in a fun and safe environment. The ROC is a place where young people can hang out, learn and socialize with others their age that share similar challenges. Youth participate in social outings, educational and employment supports, group discussions and other activities that help them build pro-social behavior and life skills.
Weekly Saturday outings let participants have fun, learn and enjoy positive social interactions. Outings may include trips to amusement parks, nature parks, sporting events, museums, paint ball, zip lining, arcades, movies and more. All activities include transportation and are provided by the ROC Clubhouse at no cost to families.
The ROC is open to youth participants from noon to 7:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and noon to 8:00 p.m. on Friday. Saturday hours vary based on activities (it is closed Sundays). ROC staff can provide transportation from your child’s school to the Clubhouse during the school year, and pick up and drop off your child at your home on Saturdays.
