For RDRC, the revitalization of the Rockaways begins with our commitment to developing people, or what we often refer to as “human capital development”.
Our Adult Services are very focused and outcome is driven – first, to change how we access and utilize technology as an increasing part of our daily lives from applying for a job online to developing an Internet business. Second, to increase our understanding of the importance of money management by providing community workshops and counseling services. Third, to emphasize the importance of eating healthy by providing nutritional workshops and food demonstrations, and increasing access to fresh produce grown locally in the Rockaways.
“It is our goal to never leave this community unprepared or feeling abandoned in the aftermath of a natural disaster such as Superstorm Sandy” – Kevin Alexander, President & CEO
