Rock Hill Local creates partnerships with several organizations in our city for the glory of God and the good of people.

God calls us to care for the orphan and widow in our city. To that end, Rock Hill supports families that participate in the Foster Care system. Rock Hill desires to provide a supportive network to foster families and in some cases even material support (meals, diapers, toys, etc.). Rock Hill also helps foster families network together for mutual encouragement and support. These networked families may even provide respite care for one another.
Let’s as the body of Christ unite together to come alongside the Foster Care system in our city so that hurting families may be transformed by the beautiful love of Jesus.
Lincoln Park Hope Center
The Lincoln Park Hope Center challenges us to serve the poor of Duluth in Jesus’ Name and to be a bridge for the poor to the church and for the church to the poor by being a hope-filled gathering place where people can meet Jesus, be helped, and be a help to others.
We desire to help the poor of the Duluth/Superior area, especially those in need of relief and rehabilitation, those who are seeking the Lord, and those who live in Lincoln Park.
“If among you, one of your brothers should become poor, in any of your towns within your land that the LORD your God is giving you, you shall not harden your heart or shut your hand against your poor brother, but you shall open your hand to him and lend him sufficient for his need, whatever it may be.” (Deuteronomy 15:7-8 ESV)
Mentor Duluth (a program of the Duluth Area Family YMCA)
Contact: Josh Nonnemacher | email@example.com
Strengthened by 75 years of mentoring experience, the Mentor Duluth Collaborative matches positive adults with young people between the ages of 5-18. Our mentors are asked to be a role model, guide, resource and – most importantly – a friend to their mentees. Our matches are based on shared interests between the youth and adult.
Our program is a collaboration of seven youth serving agencies including the Duluth Area Family YMCA, the Boys & Girls Club of the Northland, Valley Youth Center, YWCA Duluth, Neighborhood Youth Services, Proctor Hermantown Community Education, and Mentor Superior.
There are just under 200 kids on the waitlist – with many of them from Lincoln Park and West Duluth. It is a one-year commitment for the mentor (8-12 hours per month), with hopes for further commitment. Cooking, going on walks, and going to the movies are just some activities mentors and mentees can do together.
Northern Expressions Arts Collective
Contact: Leanne Weber – 218.789.NEAC (6322) | firstname.lastname@example.org
The mission of Northern Expressions Arts Collective (NEAC) is to provide opportunities for kids to develop their artistic talent and to use the arts to empower kids and families of all cultural and economic backgrounds to use their strengths to serve their community. NEAC also serves as a “bridge” between the local churches and members of the community, helping to create opportunities for relationship-building and community engagement.
How you can partner with NEAC:
- Volunteer with programming around the city of Duluth.
- Volunteer for “big” events:
- Haunted Happenings — Our neighborhood trick-or-treating stop (appropriate for all ages!) that both entertains and educates families on important issues such as food safety, bullying, and much more. We can use builders, painters/decorators, errand-runners, actors, and greeters.
- Egg-Splosion — Yes, we are the ones who dye and launch the Easter eggs! This is an “all hands on deck” outreach event that was designed specifically to be a partnership between NEAC and Rock Hill, as well as other local Bible-believing churches! Kids and families learn new egg-dyeing techniques and are introduced to the Gospel message and invited to church on Easter Sunday.
- Assist with hanging posters for big events.
