Who We Are

The ROCK is located at 150 West State Street in downtown Oakdale, in the former Good Shepherd Presbyterian Church. Following the 2004 flood caused by Hurricane Ivan, a few dedicated people with a vision and heart for the youth and families of Oakdale, worked to remodel the building to serve as a Youth & Family Center for the community. The ROCK opened in 2006 and has served continuously since then.

The ROCK is a non-profit 501c3 ministry supported through partnerships with businesses, churches, charitable organizations, & individual donors. The ROCK
relies heavily on church and community volunteers to accomplish its mission and

The ROCK is open to your ideas and hope to continually offer more programs as volunteers and finances increase.

The rain came down, the streams rose,
and the winds blew and beat against that
house; yet it did not fall, because it had its
foundation on the rock.
Matthew 7:25
