What is Volunteers ROC: Volunteers ROC (Rebuilding our Community) is a Faith-Based response to the March 2nd tornado in Southern Indiana. Teams from all over the country partner with V-ROC to assist Hoosier families to repair and rebuild through a holistic approach.
On March 2nd, 2012, an EF4 Tornado swept through 6 Indiana Counties: Clark, Jefferson, Washington, Scott, Ripley and Warrick.  The storm left hundreds of families with homes destroyed or with major damage. A FEMA declaration was issued on March 9th ( DR-4058). This declaration began federal assistance to many families.

Our Goal: V-ROC is established as one of the workforces to assist families who are not able to meet their own needs. V-ROC works with churches to provide work teams that come for a week at a time to help provide labor and materials, as available. These work teams work unconditionally to ensure that our families are well cared for and put back home into a safe, sanitary and secure situation.  V-ROC focuses on a holistic approach for each families’ recovery. We focus on the following; Physical, emotional, financial and spiritual. Who better than the church that can provide a well balanced recovery of all four elements.

How are clients chosen? Clients, a.k.a families or survivors, are carefully chosen by the following means;

1) They must be a home owner.

2) They must have disaster related damages to DR-4058.
3) They must qualify as a client under our NVOAD guidelines.

4) They cannot repair or rebuild on their own due to financial difficulties.

5) All clients must agree to have to their case managed by a case manager.

6) All clients agree to actively participate in their recovery.
