The Rural Outreach Centre (ROC) was a temporary emergency shelter for the areas of Galway-Cavendish and Harvey (now Trent Lakes) and Lakefield-Smith-Ennismore (now Selwyn Township).
With an increase in available social services and shelters for our area and more restrictive legislation the Centre had to changed its mandate from being an emergency shelter to a Centre that provides ongoing rural support programs.
Rural areas often finds themselves isolated by topography, transportation limitations and economic/social challenges. The mandate of ROC changed to assisting families and individuals with overcoming some of those challenges. Because of the change in mandate ROC will no longer supported by this website and will be in the process of establishing a new one based upon our change in name, in direction and our opening the doors of the once limited use Centre to various programs.
New Name: ROC has adopted a new name along with its new mandate to provide a fresh start.If you require assistance or would like to learn about upcoming programs or have an idea for one; please do not hesitate to contact us! OUR NEW NUMBER IS (705) 768-3590
