Our Safety Patrol Volunteers serve as the "watchmen" for the kids making sure they use the crosswalk safely and enter the building. They also escort volunteers and staff to their vehicles throughout the evening.
Shifts needed: 4:45 - 5:45 PM (Monday - Thursday) and 7:45 - 8:15 PM (Monday - Thursday). After your shift patrolling outside, you may join our kids for dinner at 5:45 if you'd like!

On Mondays and Wednesdays we serve 1st grade through 6th grade and Tuesdays and Thursdays we serve 7th grade through 12th grade.

The Volunteer Position: Safety Patrol - someone who monitors the kids as they are coming into the building to make sure they are safe.

Commitment: At least one evening per week.

An overview of our program:

Each night, our doors open at 5:00. The children play on the playground (weather permitting), watch movies, draw, etc., until dinner is served around 5:45. Every night the kids are with us, we serve them a hot meal. After dinner, the kids head to Chapel for worship and a light lesson. Afterwards, they head to age-appropriate classrooms for expounding on the chapel lesson. We provide the curriculum and related supplies for each night. At the end of the night, each child leaves with a kid-friendly food bag to keep them fed while they are not with us.

Rock House Kids is an ongoing year-round program. We ask for at least a year-long commitment.

Choose the day(s) of the week that best works for you! We have a great time with these precious, hungry and hurting children. We need volunteers that will faithfully support the evening programs by following the curriculum that is set forth for each day programming is available.

An application can be mailed, filled out at our office, or online at https://rockhousekids.org/program-volunteers/

A background check is required for anyone working with our kids.

If you have any questions, please call our office.

Mission Statement

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, 1st grade through 12th grade, by providing a safe, warm and nurturing environment four evenings a week. Our Mission Sharing God's love with inner-city children through Biblical principles, with physical and spiritual solutions. Our Vision To meet the physical, emotional, and educational needs of inner-city children by instilling hope in a safe, Christ-centered environment. Our Motto Help for Today...Hope for Eternity


Rock House Kids is a faith-based ministry that provides free evening program for children from 1st grade through 12th grade. Our programming runs Monday through Thursday from 5:00pm to 8:00pm. On Mondays and Wednesdays we serve 1st through 6th grade, and Tuesdays and Thursdays we serve 7th through 12th grade.

During our evening program we serve hot meals each night, 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. Some of the topics taught are manners, self-respect, and gang violence and prevention.

At the end of each evening, the children leave with a bag of kid-friendly, non-perishable food items to sustain their hunger. Throughout the year we provide the children with basic life essentials such as winter coats, shoes, boots, socks, underwear, personal hygiene products, hats and gloves, blankets and a pillow, school supplies, flashlights, and even birthday and Christmas presents.
