The mission of Rock River Center, Inc. is to provide resources, activities, and services that improve the quality of life for Ogle County’s older adults, the disadvantaged, caregivers and the greater community.
Though the name Rock River Center is a relatively new one, the history of the Center is long. Initially called the Yellow Bird Senior Citizens Drop-in Center in 1975, then later Ogle County Senior Services, the Rock River Center has remained focused on older adults and the services they need to remain healthy in mind, body, and spirit while providing a solution to the social isolation of a growing population of older adults.
Initially a storefront operation run by volunteers with the goal of providing support to one another and a place to socialize, the Center has grown over the years so that today an Executive Director and 11 staff members work five days a week providing core, quality of life services, such as outreach and referral to families or adults seeking government assistance, Medicare guidance, and other benefits such as prescription assistance, tax preparation, homemaking, Meals on Wheels, transportation, and volunteer opportunities.
